a collection of bowls that captures the imprint of real fruits or vegetables
category Products and Furniture
reversed volumes are shaped by capturing the imprint of fruits and vegetables in an existing bowl. The space between a bowl from the flea-market and a fruit or vegetable is filled with casting material. Once dried, the vegetable and the bowl are removed and what re-mains is a new object with both imprints. The imprints are replicated as food-safe and water proof resin objects. They are hand-crafted in a semi industrial process and this method allows slight variations in colour in order to achieve some variation within the series. The vessel highlight the various surfaces of nature and help to look at them from a different perspective. They can be used for all kinds of food. The small bowls are ideal for ice-cream and desserts, the aubergine works perfectly for serving olives, the melon for fruits and the cabbage is big enough for salads. The bowls were initially designed for FoodMarketo in 2010. After some months of small batch production within the studio, the project was developed further for serial production. Since 2013, they are produced and edited by PCM Design and available in selected shops worldwide
and in PCM’s online shop.
