Designer Uses Dried Orange Peels To Create Biodegrable Kitchenware
One innovative creator turns to fruit to produce a unique line of 100 % natural utensils.
Israeli designer and graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Ori Sonnenschein has created an interesting new line of kitchenware. Using exclusively dried oranges, Sonnenschein has been able to make cups, spoons, plates, bottles, bowls and even a salt shaker. He calls his collection Solskin, which like his last name, means sunshine; it also references his optimistic nature.
How did he do it? According to Treehugger:
During the process, Sonnenschein experimented with different kinds of sources and applications. For instance, the pulverized skins from the orange juice industry were used in one attempt to create his adhesive-free prototypes. The variety of textures, elasticities and colours is infinite, despite the orange's simplicity.
