The Portafrutta, created by 35 individual forms was designed to be a fruit plate rather than a fruit bowl. The horizontal surfaces of the tray with its divided sections suggest and allow different fruit to be placed strategically around the tray. This avoids the bruising of fruit which often occours when pieces of fruit are piled on top of each other in a bowl. Each piece of fruit has it’s seperate space, giving the fruit the importance it deserves.
Made in cherry wood the tray is realized with laser cutting technology.
Made by Industreal.
