Bloom is a solid wood container with a lid for general use in the kitchen or at the dining table.
The shape is the result of many experiments, where beauty, utility and tactility were fused together in a three dimensional, organic form.
Bloom comes in natural Oak or dark stained Ash and it is beautifully made and finished in Germany by highly skilled artisans.
