‘fruit ninja’ is a collection of handmade housewares by mathery studio that are influenced by the textured exterior of produce peels. the series of four pieces transforms the short-term function of a fruit peel into an organic long-life container. the vessels reinterpret and reintroduce the natural textures of oranges, bananas, avocados, and melons, that were carefully selected for their vibrancy and tactile quality. by minutely cutting their findings into geometric shapes, they assembled the constructions into functional household objects. the models were translated into unique resin reproductions of the original form, realized from the organic peel. the set includes an an orange jar, avocado vase, banana bowl and four rock melon coasters.
