Centerpiece of Attention

This simple, elegant bowl gives you a practical serving dish and a masterful centerpiece all in one. Architect Carlo Contin's geometric design gracefully unfolds black wooden lacquered spokes into a striking basin for fruit and more, then slides into an upright position for easy and compact storage. Made in Indonesia.

    Comments about SATELLITE BOWL:

    I bought this for my nephew (age 24) for Christmas. It is very contemporary in design, and very light in weight but not fragile. I expect this will prove to be a very functional piece that invites quite a few comments and stars in discussions...

          Comments about SATELLITE BOWL:

          Love this bowl! It could be used in a kitchen counter or island, but I bought 6 of them for my work to use as decor to liven up our hotel suites and lobby! I fill them with granny smith apples which pop nicely and are practical for our guests to grab and enjoy, but you could use any medium size fruit or veggie. We have gotten many compliments on the unique and fun piece. While our decor is more modern, this piece can blend in a variety of settings. I was specifically searching for a wooden bowl that had a modern flair to it and this was absolutely perfect.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Arrived quickly and packaged great. Everything was perfect.

            The product looks substantial and attractive in the picture, but was very flimsy and didn't look attractive at all. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my daughter-in-law but didn't give it to her because it was not up to my standards for quality.

                  it is an attractive way to display fruit,dried fruit or anything that will fit in it. I love it sitting on my kitchen counter with faux green apples. The black finish with the green is a pretty contrast!

                    Bigger than i thought. However, it remains to be an eye catcher.

                      It's a really unique fruit bowl, which is what I was looking for. However, I do worry that if I put too much fruit in it, the wood will snap. I haven't had this happen yet, but the wood is just a little more delicate than I thought.
