graft-series

Chinese product designer Qiyun Deng has created a series of disposable tableware made of bioplastic PLA. ”Graft” references the look and feel of different vegetables and fruits. Deng writes: “Texture and form in nature autonomously exist with a function that we can borrow to serve the purpose of artificial objects. A celery stem for example, acts as handle for the fork; a petal of artichoke then becomes the bowl of spoon. By waking both visual and haptic sensation it brings along a question: Will you throw them away easily?”
