Czech designer Martin Zampach has produced a range of hexagonal bowls that are each made from three wooden leaves.
Martin Zampach constructed the Poly Bowl using pieces of cork, coated with ash, maple and alder wood veneers to create different colours and textures.
Curved edges allow the pieces to fit together, forming the hexagonal shape.
"The flexible building materials allow for extreme shaping of the segments and when all parts are locked to form the bowl the structure gets its strength," Zampach explained.
The designer also says that the pieces fit together in different arrangements, "to form illusional 2D and 3D ornaments".
Marcus Zampach presented the project at the Blickfang designworkshop, held at Boisbuchet in France earlier this summer. Previous projects by the designer include a collection of handblown glassware with bottle tops that can be used as shot glasses.
Other bowls we've featured on Dezeen include some that are so thin they quiver in the wind, a collection made from shredded money and a fruit bowl with concentric circles milled from a slice of oak.
