Chinese product designer Qiyun Deng has created a series of disposable tableware made of bioplastic PLA. ‘Graft’ references the look and feel of different fruit and vegetables.

Deng recreated their skins with resin, blending the texture and appearance of the foods into the 3D printed parts of the utensils. 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?
