designer's own words:

Hang your fruit on the wall. "The Ring" is an urusual fruitbowl made of porcelain. It is not placed on a dining table or on kitchen unit but hangs on the wall. The concept is between art and design. It is to be hang on the wall, like a decorative piece of art, a mordern version of still life fruit paintings. Yet, as a fruitbowl, the ring is a useful design object, shape and openings are a new and interesting unit for a fruitbowl. The fruit is put into the opening at the top and can be taken out at the bottom. At both sides opening are located to show the amount of remaining fruit. Due to it´s perviousness to air and it´s eco-friendliness, porcelain is particularly suitable as a fruitbowl. In small kitchen, space is precious on table, but walls are often left bare. So the ring, decorative design, hang on the wall, make it easier to plan your space.
