Cocoon: A Fruit Basket and Herb Planter in One!

Cocoon: A Fruit Basket and Herb Planter in One!

Wow, here is one design concept we really wish we could buy. It's a hanging herb planter and fruit basket for the kitchen, and we know exactly where we'd put it.

We have a sunny, open window area in our kitchen that would be so perfect for something like this. We've even thought about putting hanging plants there and dismissed the idea because we weren't sure how to hang them easily and effectively.

This design concept from Måns Salomonsen is not just good-looking — it's very clever, too. The herb garden on top absorbs excess moisture from the fruit, and then as it this moisture evaporates it cools the area below — helping the fruit stay fresh longer.

We'd love to get our hands on one of these; it would be a great little seed-starting vessel, too!
