Designers Anna Glansén and Hanna Billqvist of Tomorrow Machine designed a clean, eco-friendly version that they’ve dubbed the “sustainable expanding bowl.” It’s made from 100% bio-based and biodegradable material, and it hardens into an eating vessel for soups, noodles, and pretty much anything with a “just add water” label on it.
