Flatpack Fruit Bowls
The Gills Bowl by Bettina Nissen Folds to Form a Dish

By definition, a bowl is anything but flat, so it may be an unusual concept for most to purchase one that occupies just two dimensions. The Gills Bowl by Bettina Nissen has however been designed to be bent into shape by the user.

Looking like contemporary laser-cut doilies, each fold-out dish has eight abstract fins that have been traced out of a square metal sheet. An effortless upward crease along the central octagonal perforated lines sets each trapezoidal side in place and promises a stiff resistance to retracting. The underside of every salver is painted one of four neon colors to enhance the modern flair of the rad receptacles. The Gills Bowl by Bettina Nissen would be an eye-catching addition to a minimal kitchen.
