BOWL / fruit bowl


The whole structure of BOWL is broken into two, so is the traditional meaning of integrity of a container, to solve the certain conflict of holding and releasing of water within just one unity, at the same time, to create a conflict visually by the use of two bright opposing colors on appearance. The adjustability of the piece not only allows the bowl to keep objects of different sizes from berries to apples inside when releases the water, but also allows the control of the magnitude of the water flow going out. Also, unnecessary touch of water by hands are avoided now to provide a more hygienic and comfortable experience of washing fruits.
