In this collection of tableware named Graft<, Chinese designer Qiyun Deng took organic to a different level by infusing the texture of fruit and vegetable kins into the cuterly. Although meant to be disposable, these tableware are made of biodegradable plastic using 3D printer and thus, are much more environmentally friendly than the normal disposable tableware.

The idea behind Graft, as explained by its creator:

Texture and form in nature autonomously exist with a function that we can borrow to serve the purpose of artificial objects. A celery stem for example, acts as handle for the fork; a petal of artichoke then becomes the bowl of spoon. By waking both visual and haptic sensation it brings along a question: Will you throw they away easily?
