The Decorative Bowls Bringing Nature to Your Home
It’s never been easier to add a little touch of Spring to your home thanks to the gorgeous new Petals Decorative Bowls fresh from be&liv.
Designed by co-owner and founder of be&liv, Janne Uusi-Autti, the bowls are made of recyclable plastic segments. Together the pieces form organic shapes, which resemble the pretty petals of a flower. The perfect decorative bowls for a living room, coffee table or dining table, they unite contemporary styling with a classic floral theme.
As well as being a beautiful object the Petals bowls also make excellent fruit bowls. The natural curves of each petal cup the fruit; while the petal shapes allow the air to flow freely, resulting in a longer shelf life of the fruit.
Crafted from recyclable food grade plastic with an acrylic core, the decorative bowls are packaged flat and then easily clipped together at your convenience. As you will see from the video at the top of the post, each petal slots onto the central core, building up to quickly create a beautiful flower-shaped bowl.
As with all be&liv designs, Petals is Eco flat packed for self assembly in a gift box. Smaller packaging means a smaller carbon footprint. Flying big boxes full of air around the globe is big part of any product’s carbon footprint, so be&liv designed everything flat. Not just an Eco-consideration, Janne used this as a design advantage; showing that flat, economically-packed products don’t need to look clumsy and boxy. Instead, they could be organic shapes with natural beauty, just like the Petals decorative bowls.
The flat-pack nature of the bowls is also a huge advantage for gift givers, resulting in affordable mail delivery, and a post-able gift that can be easily sent to friends and family worldwide.
