silver flying saucer bowlby Vicki and Richard Kung
- the story
Unidentified Flying Supper
Just the thing for on-the-fly feasts, this sci-fi dish turns everyday meals into out-of-this-world feasts. An aluminum bowl and steel base dish take on a space-age design that's both sensible and stylish. When stacked together, it makes a zippy centerpiece. When deconstructed, the bowl is perfectly suited as a fruit basin (with its strategic holes), while the standing dish can accommodate infinite
tabletop ideas--and beyond!
Aluminum bowls with a nickel-plated steel base. Handmade in India.

Vicki and Richard Kung
Designers Vicki and Richard Kung are inspired by all things robotic and sci-fi. This focus on sleek, smooth lines and giving their pieces a futuristic feel lead to the metallic, interchangeable pieces comprising the Modular Candlestick Set and the out-of-this-word qualities in many of their designs.
The worlds of si-fi and design collide in Museum of Robots, the couple's homage to metallic mechanisms, where a love of robots, technology and product design combine in functional products for the home.
It's no surprise the duo is designing pieces fit for the future. Richard has been collecting robots for 25 years and Vicki is a lifelong sci-fi fan who got her first robot at age 6.
According to Richard and Vicki, "All our products are inspired by robots, which to us are the essence of modern and nostalgic, futuristic and retro, technical and playful, functional and entertaining, and perfectly represent our vision."
Museum of Robots is located in the suitably sci-fi, online world of Second Life. The Museum hosts digital exhibits dedicated to the appreciation of robots, whether historical, cinematic or literary.
