During recent Milan Design Week, Aliantedizioni presented Le Elidi, a series of bowls similar to flower corollas that seem to rise from the top of the table as giant translucent water lilies. Conceived as lightweight fruit bowls, they are made in two dimensions in film of translucent polypropylene for food and are obtained by lifting and hooking the petals of a two-dimensional silhouette contained in a very thin package. Le Elidi are in fact easy to assemble and disassemble due to the flexibility of the material which also facilitates washing and placing in a simple drawer when not in use. Once the life cycle is exhausted, the material is fully recyclable.
