You might be tempted to guess that the Pick Fruit Basket was created in this unusual fashion purely as a means to be different. One would be wrong to assume that there was no practical motive behind the suspended cage-like design, for the person who dreamed it up did so with clever considerations regarding storage and consumption.

Kare Frandsen took a pair of steel rings and had them intersect to suggest the three-dimensional form of the sphere. Bungee cords were crisscrossed in and out of small holes around the frame, creating an open enclosure for your food. Easily pull cords aside to fill the fruit bowl with oranges and pears. The heavier items that you'll tend to arrange at the bottom of the Pick Fruit Basket are more accessible than usual, encouraging air circulation and inviting you to pluck them so that apples, for instance, are less likely to go bad.
