It’s been a while since I posted anything about bowls but this is a good one, I promise. Coconut palm grown throughout the tropics for both culinary and non-culinary uses, virtually every part of coconut palm trees has some application. The coconut shell is what remains after the coconut meat and milk have been harvested. Coconut shells are usually a waste by-product, but have been transformed into a new purpose with these colourful bowls. Each bowl is unique since the shape is determined by the actual coconut. Every bowl is cleaned and polished, then finished with a durable food-safe PU lacquer and accented with a bright colour. Comes in a set of 4 includes in Mango, Cayenne, Spearmint Blue, and Basil Green. Available from re:modern.

Soso is a brand of high-quality salt that comes from a salt mine next to a nature reserve in Santiago de la Ribera, Spain. Using an egg shape as the perfect container for the packaging, Eduardo del Fraile decided that it would be reproduced for the product container and salt cellar. Soso has different types of salt to cook with different flavours; the colour of each egg relates to its flavour. The brand SOSO means “lacking salt or short of salt” in Spanish.

I’m sure it takes someone who truly loves cats to understand their nature enough to design something like this. The Cat Hammock by Koichi Futatsumata of CaseReal is actually a coffee table with a hammock under the glass so your precious feline can hang out with you while you’re watching tv/having a relaxing cuppa. To be released in spring 2010. I can foresee our cats hanging out in one of this. Meow?
