LUSH

RESPONSIBLE STORAGE FOR PRODUCE

When Lush is combined with the clear exterior container (not photographed, see digital rendering), a double wall is created between your food and where you store it. The double wall of the container creates a barrier between the harsh refrigerator walls and the storage container thus allowing your fruit to maintain one temperature throughout.

CUTTING BOARD + STORAGE

The cutting board is designed with the user in mind. The transition between cutting board and storage container is seamless allowing for a smooth flow of prep work.

She likes to showcase her vegetables. There is no beautiful way to do so.

She finds it difficult to properly store her cleaning supplies

She can never properly use the “dead space” in the corner of her countertop.

The end of her counter is used as her “remember spot” and wishes there was a attractive way to house those items
