An egg with its container, a solid and a hollow part, the convexity andconcavity of a hold-all container. In an elegant glossy lacquer finish,available in black or white, Fukasawa presents his personaland humorous interpretation of the classic oriental theme of opposites,positive and negative, yin and yang. The container, a six-faced boxwith a cavity shaped like half an egg carved out of one side, is theperfect bowl or fruit basket, with a purpose that can change accordingto the need of the moment. The egg can also be taken apart into fourready-for-use trays.
