The Durian, a fruit with a name derived from Malay languages, meaning spike, has an infamous reputation for being difficult to consume and even more difficult to carry. The sharp exterior pokes through plastic bags, and for obvious reasons, the fruit can't be carried in the palm of one's hand. To make the delicious food more accessible, designers at Wenzhou College crafted a carrying device designed specifically to house this popular but problematic fruit.
The poke-free net bag serves as a specialized tote, coming complete with a protective body and handles. Users can simply place the fruit in the center of the bag, conveniently and safely enclosing the fruit by holding the handles together. The mesh paper balls used in the design create the perfect carrying surface for the fruit, ensuring a hassle-free trip to and from the market.
