Designer Ola Wihlborg:
"I’ve worked a lot with metal and noticed that plastic has similar qualities. It can be folded in the same way, but it’s easier to recycle and package. The three IKEA PS 2012 bowls in different sizes are just as practical as ordinary bowls, but can be packed as thin plastic sheets. They take a minimum amount of space and are sent in very flat packages, which drastically reduces the number of transports we have to make. Then by just folding the thin sheets in a few simple ways you transform them into generous bowls."
