Kontra Fruit Salad BowlPrice: $199.00
Design by Maria Berntsen, 2011.
Bowls of fruit have been painted throughout the ages. It's unfortunate that Cézanne and Gauguin never got to feast their eyes on Stelton's Kontra Fruit Salad Bowl. Made from a combination of stainless steel and bamboo, the effect exemplifies the designer's east-meets-west aesthetic. You are not required to serve fruit from this bowl. It's the perfect size for serving appetizers or side dishes. Need any more reasons to love this product? Stelton provides lovely branded gift packaging with every product.
Material(s): Bamboo, stainless steel

"Designing is communicating — and a successful design is always easy to understand". "Designing a quality product is optimizing its form and function through the detail".
"We are always aware of quality, and I use this intuitive sense when creating new designs".
Maria Berntsen is one of Rosendahl's new designers. She is very broadly educated; a Bachelor in economics, the School of Architecture of the Danish Art Academy, and a study trip to a school of architecture in Bordeaux.
Maria Berntsen finds the three-dimensional element very important, which you can tell from her designs that are often created by making models.View other products by Maria Bernsten
Stelton was founded in Denmark, 1960 with humble beginnings selling steel hollowware. When administrative director Peter Holmblad established a cooperation with the leading Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1964 they saught to create a true line of tableware where correlation of design between the individual items would always ensure harmonious table settings. The result was the now famous Cylinda-Line which was launched in 1967 and immediately attracted considerable attention for its serene and functionalist design. The company rapidly grew in Denmark and worldwide due to the success of Cylinda-Line.
Today, Stelton offers five different design-lines with products from more than 20 top-designers and thereby represents once again one of the most innovative and front-running companies of its kind.

On top of this, Stelton receives each year some of the world's most important international design prizes such as iF product design award, Red Dot, and FORM.
