Seed Safe

I find this stoneware vase, called a Seed Safe, completely charming. It was created by Spanish designer Marti Guixe for Alessi, the Italian kitchenware and tabletop company. It is being introduced at the Alessi showroom in NYC this week.

The idea behind Seed Safe is that you store up the seeds of the foods you've eaten so you can plant them later. I know you could just throw the seeds into a plastic takeout container or a paper bag, but come on, where's the whimsy in that?

The nicest part of this design is Guixe's drawing explaining the purpose of the vase.
