Cool Chrome Centerpieces: 5 Sleek Metal Fruit Bowl Designs


An apple a day is a lot easier to eat if our reminder is an amazing metal design object – hanging, perhaps, right from the ceiling by wires and dispensing each piece from a shiny swirling spiral one at a time (a concept from designers Michael Andersson + Maria Axelqvist)

If you would rather rack them up for a more dynamic game, the triangle shown above by Danilo Calvache is a play on pool that lets you sort and stack oranges, apples or other round fruits in a mobile metal bowl without so much as a bottom. Alternatively, you can spin your lemons and limes around as if on a roulette wheel or put them in a stack up on a metal-pronged pedestal.

Reflective chrome coating makes this a dynamic decor object (from Movisi) regardless of its purposes (almost like a piece of abstract art before you put actual food on it), but the multi-colored apples multiply is visual effects and play off the mirrored surfaces in remarkable ways.
