Who we are


We are Carmina Mahugo, designer and photographer, Diego Polognioli designer and metal craftsman and Martin Polognioli in consulting and responsible for budgets.

Three years ago out of necessity, Carmina had an idea:

- At home we eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and fruit bowls always take up so much space that could be used for other things. Suddenly, I had the idea of a hanging fruit bowl that would let me take advantage of unoccupied space and it would also look beautiful!

Quickly I went to talk to my friend Diego and thanks to his assistance and knowledge of materials we were able to get the best result. We made exactly what I needed and it was truly fantastic!

In the beginning we made it just for personal use but over time more and more friends saw it and wanted one! That’s how we decided to get to work and present this project. 


Thanks: We want to thank our friends who have selflessly participated by lending us a hand: Jen, Lucía, Fiona, Ignacio, Ciro, Marina, Csar, Cristina, Eva, Miguel, Nidia, Jose Manuel…Thank you very much!

Advantages of having a Fruit-Wall

In addition to the problem of space discovered all these new benefits!


1. The fruit can breathe.

You can arrange the fruit so it doesn’t touch
The fruit doesn't get piled on top of each other so the bottom fruit doesn’t get crushed
You can easily see when something is starting to go bad, allowing you to use it up before that happens. This will save you a lot of money by making use of fruit and vegetables you might normally have had to throw away.

2. Rotate your food for freshness

Fruit-Wall allows you to organize your fruit by what needs to be eaten first. You can avoid the older fruit going bad by eating them before the newer fruit. How does Fruit-Wall help with this? It’s as easy as shifting them to the left, for example, and adding the new pieces to the right! But that’s up to you.This way, kids and absent-minded adults can just grab the apple on the left without having to think about which one needs to be eaten first.

3. Eat your fruit at room temperature

Keeping your fruit at Fruit-Wall it can ripen naturally and will taste even better

4. Save space on the counter and in the fridge

Hang up to 44 pounds of fresh fruit an vegetable
in your kitchen, you can use this space where nothing else would normally fit.
We also save space in the fridge by not filling it up with fruit and vegetables.
Fruit-Wall takes up very little space!!!
To store the same amount of fruit on large model Fruit-Wall we could need up to 6 fruit bowls, taking up your counter space. With Fruit-Wall you only need an empty wall! Measuring just 48x34x3 in, Fruit-Wall is more narrow than most conventional kitchen shelves. By hanging one.

5. Easily make your shopping list .Having everything right in front of you helps see what you really need

In just one glance, you can see which fruits and vegetables you have on hand and what you’re missing. This helps you decide what to cook that day and easily make your shopping list.

6. Promotes eating fresh fruit for the whole family

Easy access to the fruit is another great advantage

Fruit can be stored outside the refrigerator and can be eat eaten at room temperature at any time. This is a delicious way to enjoy all its natural flavor.
Having the fruit in plain sight makes you want to eat it. Especially kids.

7. Easy to clean

A damp cloth is all you need

8. Height is no problem.

Personalize your Fruit-Wall to be up to six shelves. Unneeded shelves can be removed simply and easily and conveniently stored anywhere.

9. Life-time usage

Great durability. Simple and efficient design. High-quality materials.

10. It’s easy to hang

You only need 3-5 screws, depending on the size of your model

11. And of course, Fruit-Wall has esthetic value too! It looks beautiful.

It brightens up any room, its minimalistic design lets the fruit you choose take center stage.
Having a Fruit-Wall is like having a live still life that changes shape and color everyday!! Fruit-Wall fills your blank wall with color. You can combine colors, shapes, textures…your kitchen will never be the same!!
Put Fruit-Wall in your life and you’ll have something that adds vitality, practicality, warmth and distinction to your house.
Fruit-Wall will undoubtedly mark a before and an after in the concept of fruit bowls. Once you’ve got one, you’ll never go back to a traditional fruit bowl.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Although Diego works in metal, he makes personalized, unique products by hand. This project requires large-scale production so we have asked for estimates from four different big companies that work in metal on a large scale and we have prices to produce from 100 to thousands of Fruit-Walls! For that reason, there will not be a problem to produce the necessary pieces. We have made prototypes for these four companies, thereby assuring that the final result will be correct. For us, the quality of the finished product is very important!

We also have the estimated prices from 2 different companies in regards to the painting of both the white-painted Fruit-Walls and the special offer painted color of choice.

Additionally, we have the prices and samples of the shipping boxes that the product will be sent in for both the small and large sized Fruit-Wall.
For the matter of shipping, we have examined different possibilities and have decided on Amazon for orders to the US as well as those sent to Europe.
In summary, within the four production providers, we have the capacity to produce 5,000 units or more per month. We have the production plan already prepared and ready to begin; we just need your support to be able to start making them!

We are pleased that you are joining us in this business venture and we are sure you will be very happy!
Keep in mind that this is not just an idea; it is an object that has been tested and has been working for three years in our homes!!! We only need a little push so that many more people will be able to enjoy Fruit-Wall as much as we do.

Thank you very very much!!!!!!!!!!!!
