The Fruit Template is Deceptively Two-Dimensional

The limited edition Fruit-Template is a fruit bowl that looks deceptively two-dimensional. Like a plain white sheet of paper that has produce-shaped cutouts, it appears to be more of a kid's school project than an actual piece of dishware. Nevertheless, the Fruit-Template fruit bowl is capable of holding the items represented in its cutouts, if in a rather unorthodox way.

Created by the 1% design studio, the Fruit-Template fruit bowl is made out of steel, not paper. Forming a triangle, it stands straight up so that people can place specific fruit into each hole. Instead of piling them on top of each other, the Fruit-Template fruit bowl puts them on display. Available in black and white, only 100 pieces were made.
