Soft Bowls by Kristine Five Melvaer, an industrial designer based in Oslo, Norway, is a stunning set of containers that is part of a larger Still Life series. Joining her Liquid Light creation, they complement the overall series with its rounded aesthetic and turned birch wood material. Despite its name, the bowls aren't actually soft, but simply look it.

As though inversions of each other, the Soft Bowls by Kristine Five Melvaer take on two completely different shapes. While one is low and wide, the other one is more squat and tall. The former boasts a low hill that allows the fruit or other produce it holds to climb upwards while the latter hides its contents from prying eyes.
