Droso 01 

Droso 01 is designed to repel fruit flies as cork is a natural fly repellant. The shallow dish form of the bowl stops users from overcrowding it, meaning less fruit goes to waste.

The ‘Droso’ series developed from memories of my grandmother storing wine corks in her fruit bowl as she had been told by her mother that cork wards off flies. These fruit bowls not only leverage the qualities of cork as a natural fly inhibitor, but evoke this nostalgia.

The fruit bowl features stylised cork feet that plug into the flanged holes on the slip cast ceramic bowl acting as an insect repellant as well as providing a  soft surface contact point.
