Italian industrial designer Viviana Degrandi designed this Drop colander, which is meant as an alternative to a salad spinner (and has less parts).
While it won't wash a salad big enough for four, it's designed to be loaded with berries, cherry tomatoes, herbs or greens. Once loaded the inner handle is rotated, closing it; then water can be run through the hollow handle and into the sphere.
The Drop was picked up by the MoMA Design Store, which retails them for $30.

With "fewer" parts? Forgot to pass it to the editor before publishing?
Pretty object but a horrible replacement for either a colander or salad spinner.
With a handle so long, where would one find a water source high enough to fill it? The shower maybe?
Also it can't be used for most pasta like this as it will slide through gap that runs the ENTIRE circumference top to bottom.
How is this a "salad spinner"..? I have to physically whip my arm around to "spin" it? Also thanks for making it about 2 times bigger than any "salad spinner" I've ever seen! Super useful.
