This year Sarah K. O’Brien received the International Housewares Association’s Student Design award for her Elizabowl.  O’Brien created the fruit bowl while studying industrial design at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. Inspired by origami and ruffled Elizabethan collars, the Elizabowl folds and unfolds according the amount of fruit that it holds. The separate compartments keep the fruit from spoiling. Since winning the award, O’Brien has moved NYC where she is launching a product design department at the architectural firm 212box.

Read O’Brien’s design development document (very cool)
