Stockholm 2012: Londoner Benjamin Hubert has designed a fruit bowl for Swedish brand David Design with concentric circles milled out of a slice of oak, cut deeper as they approach the centre to form a stepped dish.
These steps reduce the surface area of the fruit that's touching the bowl, allowing air to circulate and preventing mould.
Called Halo, the bowl is part of David Design's Atelier collection, which also includes the Heart Chair by Claesson Koivisto Rune that we published yesterday.
Here are some more details from Benjamin Hubert:
Halo - Benjamin Hubert x David Design
Halo is a range of geometric CNC cut Solid Oak fruit bowls designed by Benjamin Hubert for Scandinavian brand David Design’s ‘Atelier collection’.
The bowls signature is a series of concentric ribs in the surface, these ribs allow for a minimum surface area contact with the fruit contents. This allows for optimum airflow beneath the fruit decreasing the presence of mould and increasing the shelf life of the produce.
David Design has re-launched under New management and art direction in 2012 working with a number of established and up and coming designers under new management and art Direction.
