A peeled homewares collection.
Fruit Wares (previously called Fruit Ninja) is a homewares collection designed by Mathery and handmade in Melbourne. The collection transforms the fruit peel’s short term function as a natural container into a long-life one. The vessels explore and reintroduce the natural textures of the fruit, every object is a unique resin reproduction of a model realised from fruit peels. Fruit was carefully selected among dozens of fruit markets and minutely cut into geometric shapes then reassembled as objects.
May we introduce the Orange Jar, Avocado Vase, Banana Bowl, Rock Melon Coasters and Pineapple Punch Bowl.
Fruit Wares collection has been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria and it is now part of the permanent design collection.
