Utrecht [1]-based SEMdesign [2] created this low-impact faceted bowl that is made entirely from cardboard so it can be easily recycled or composted at the end of its life. Named “Fruit Bowl 128 Cardboard”, this stripey bowl was made by laser-cutting and affixing 128 different pieces of recycled cardboard together.
