A 3D Printed Hairbrush Bowl?

By on September 26th, 2011 in Design, Usage


Qatar-based designer Thomas Modeen has produced a very unusual fruit bowl design. Well, we suppose it could hold a lot of other things, too. The design is inspired by a hairbrush – but upside down so that the bristles support items placed on top. 
There are plenty more pictures of the “Hair-Brush Fruit-Bowl” at Tom’s site, smArchitecture, as well as lots of other cool designs. According to Tom:
After extensive field-tests, documentation of which can be observed below, the intended functions of the artifact have been proven to be adaptable to almost all generally available fruits, vegetables and hair-types (watermelons, large pumpkins & durians, and dread-locks excluded)
