If your bananas are always going bad too quickly and apples are missing no opportunity to leap out of the fruit bowl the moment you grab something from it, the three-tiered Chilewich RayTray ($125.00) with delicate mesh could be the answer to all your troubles.
Each tier, available in smoke, black, or off-white, is made from stretch netting that is most often seen in the bedroom (in lingerie), not kitchens.
The frame itself is made of metal strong enough to support the produce you need to keep fresh as long as possible. Not only that, the average fruit bowl can be boring; this design is like a piece of art.
The use of lingerie materials in this design comes as no surprise with a look into New York designer Sandy Chilewich’s work history. She co-founded a hosiery company, HUE, with Kathy Moskal in 1978 and stayed there through 1994.
Even after her departure from HUE, she followed her interest in materials and textiles, using them in new and different ways. That’s how the RayBowl, RayTray, and RayBoxes came into existence.
