Passive food cooler
Exam work, HDK Academy of design and crafts, University of Gothenburg.
Cache is an object inspired by Swedish Jördkällare (traditional earth cellars), which remain dotted in and around the landscape of the Dalsland region today.
Food waste is continuing to be a global problem and by storing food correctly, the freshness is extended and the food preserved.
Cache is a piece that conserves and helps cool your vegetables thanks to the evaporation of water and porosity of its ceramics. Moreover, it creates a podium the food deserves.
Most vegetables get too cold in refrigerators but go bad quickly when stored outside the refrigerator. Your (homegrown) fruits and vegetables are stored in a piece of furniture that makes for an excellent display, and by making the act of storing your vegetables more of a ritual, it encourages people to appreciate food in a new way.
Cache is part of my exam work at HDK Academy of design and crafts, University of Gothenburg.
Exhibited at Ventura Lambrate, Milan design week 2016; Exam Exhibition HDK 2016 and Steneby Exhibit 2016
