Blue Fruit Bowl, from Multiplastica Domestica collection, 2012

This is a Blue fruit bowl. It was designed by Brunno Jahara.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Brunno Jahara as part of Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial.

It is dated 2012. Its medium is plastic and aluminum.

Brunno Jahara’s collection Multiplastica Domestica began in 2012 when, passing by recycling center close to his studio, he noticed the vast stock of barely used plastic containers that had been discarded. Experimenting with this material, Jahara created usable containers and structures that unite sustainability, sculptural quality, and functionality. For this fruitbowl, Jahara connects the plastic objects to a central metal spine in order to create a tiered and multicolored arrangement of vessels.

It is credited Museum purchase from designer.
