MoMA Satellite Bowl by Carlo Contin | Red
MoMA Satellite Bowl in red by Carlo Contin
The striking red MoMA Satellite Bowl is a playful approach to the design of modern fruit bowls. At first glance, the sculpturesque object of 12 equal-formed lacquered wooden spokes appears to be a throw of oversized Mikado sticks caught in midair. The resulting geometric form is unique and very minimalist in itself. With or without fruit, as a centrepiece, this fruit bowl is a dramatic eye-catcher.
Carlo Contin designed the Satellite Bowl 1999 for the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMa). It is a tribute to the Sciangai Clothes Rack by De Pas, D'Urbino, Lomazzi which also uses the principle of apart-falling self-stabilizing rods .
