Gallery: Football Stadium for Fruit Made From Recycled Produce Crates


This fruitalicious sculpture by Netherlands-based artist Helmut Smits has got us thinking about how we can transform our own fruit bowl into a fabulous piece of art this weekend.

Can’t you just imagine its popularity at your local farmer’s market?!

    Haha, I agree. I am hesitant to believe that Smits was trying to design a new, horribly inefficient means of displaying produce. Perhaps the fruit was intended to be a little more symbolic? And replace the warmer/brighter light of the halogen floods with cool(colder) LEDs for displaying produce and wood? Preposterous!

    In the USA farmers market patrons like to be able to get to the produce. I wonder if your editors/writers have perhaps been in too frequent contact with the hazardous materials in the circuit board notebook covers.
