Flexible Leaf Dishes

I simply had to post about these technologically advanced leaf dishes by Nao Tamura . Fun, flexible, stackable, rollable, and microwave/oven safe, what more do you want?

My only question about this product is whether it is sustainable and eco-friendly? Other than that I love how the design takes nature as its inspiration—Biomimicry, and how it continues the age-old tradition of wrapping food in leaves (grape and banana leaves)

Made out of silica sand, each dish looks and replicate the appearance of a large leaf.


  1. Great minds think alike ;)

  2. If it is made from silica sand (aka glass) how is it flexible?
