Kitchen Accessories Created From Refrigerator Leftovers
Designers looked to create harmony between food and serving products.
Designing a product usually starts with a sketch or some 3d modeling on the computer. Japanese designers Kurasuhito Kurasutokoro and Yusuke Komatsu went a different direction and rummaged through the vegetable bin in a refrigerator looking for ideas. They found some leftover slices of onion, apple and lotus root. Noticing an interesting contrast in shapes between the sliced faces and the natural sides, the pair imagined new uses for each of the vegetables but it required capturing their shapes in a longer lasting material.
