These fun, flexible leaf dishes by Nao Tamura may be an inspired synthesis of nature and technology, but they also continue the age-old tradition of wrapping food in leaves (grape and banana leaves, anyone?). Dubbed ‘Seasons’, these eye-catching organic forms offer an unconventional, but practical way to serve and present food. Made from silica sand, each dish is flexible, stackable, and can be compactly rolled up, microwaved or even used in the oven!
