Unexpectedly Functional Object

How many times have alien creatures invaded Earth in classic movies, comics and TV shows? If they'd all been as charming and helpful as this far-out serving dish, then they could have won over our fellow Earthlings in a snap.

With its lid in place, this wooden flying saucer is sure to be a smile-winning conversation piece. Flip the lid over and you have two sleek modern serving bowls, perfect for fruit or a tossed salad.

Handmade in the Philippines of acacia wood, with Cattleya green interior. Designed by Richard and Vicki Kung for the Museum of Robots.

Exclusively at Uncommon Goods.

Made in

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.
