Sushi Towels will make you think twice the next time you go to haphazardly hang towels on the oven. Designer Jenny Pokryvailo created the towels for the design studio OTOTO. "Ototo" means "any minute now" in Hebrew and the studio's mantra is that a new idea can pop up at any given moment. To that end it accepts outside submissions, such as Pokryvailo's Sushi Towels and her previously submitted Loch Ness soup ladle.
The Sushi Towels come in four types of rolls: salmon, tuna, crab and tamago. When rolled up correctly, the kitchen towels look identical to a roll of sushi. At the moment the towels offer no added functionality, but they should ensure that kitchens look tidy and festive.
