These adorable tabletop tree sculptures make a novel alternative to the traditional fruit bowl. "100% recyclable and eco-conceived," according to design company Smarin, the 'Mangier' is made from natural beech and available in three structures for any foodstuff you care to adorn it with.

Some more curious uses include marshmallows and even prawn crackers for a delightful paper moon effect.  Indeed, the variety of "fruits" is limited only by imagination. The Mangier makes creative party trays or striking dining table centerpieces, providing a unique and interactive experience that combines food and design.
