In an attempt to help keep produce fresh longer, the Lök is a suspended string fruit bowl specially designed to absorb the ethylene gas fruits and vegetables give off that can quickly age and ripen the produce. The modern aesthetic of the bowl also provides more ventilation with criss-crossed string that holds the produce in place while keeping it on display in the kitchen.

The Lök Fruit Bowl is an innovative take on the traditional ceramic bowl that utilizes string formatted with a special coating that absorbs over-production of ethylene gas. Consumers can then harvest the collected gas to grow other plants. The strings intersect continuously throughout a vase-shaped frame creating webbing for the produce to sit in. This provides a design is both stylishly modern as well as functional.
