The solid wood, pebble like shape of the bowl was inspired by the variety in size of the fruits themselves and especially the shape of the grapes. Available in light white or black wax finish

 

In addition the designer, along with Constantinos Hoursoglou, both award-winning Greek designers, created the shibui line, a range of hand-crafted homeware and accessories. Shibui is a Japanese word which refers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. All the products embody the principles of shibui: effortlessly effective craftsmanship using the greatest restraint and the minimum materials. Never complicated or contrived, every detail serves a purpose. Functional and flexible, the  products are designed to complement any environment. Timeless pieces that outlast passing trends.
