For her diploma project at the Ă‰cole cantonale d’art de Lausanne in Switzerland, product designer Qiyun Deng created a beautiful set of utensils and and serving bowls made from bioplastic PLA, a material most often derived from vegetable fats, oils, or starches. Titled Graft, the delicately crafted design of each piece serves as a reminder of the biodegradable materials used to create them: a celery stem becomes a handle for a fork, a stalk of fennel becomes a knife, a slender carrot a spoon.
While Graft is just a concept at this point, I imagine these could sell extraordinarily well given the right price. But could you actually bring yourself to toss such a beautifully designed object in the compost bin? Learn more over on Deng’s website. (via THEmag
