The Problem
Washing Fruits is Painful.
Small fruits, like strawberries and cherries keep falling out whenever users pour the water out of the container.
V Bowl
The structure of bowl is broken into two:
What was also broken is the traditional concept of integrity of a container.
The structure of V Bowls is redesigned to solve the conflict of holding and releasing water within just one unit, at the same time, to create a conflict visually by the use of two bright opposing colors on appearance.
How it Works
Lift the chip to release water.
The movable chip of V Bowl brings the adjustability that can keep objects of different sizes, from cherries to apples from dropping out when releasing the water.
Before
After
