Save food from the refrigerator

Jihyun Ryou, Design Academy Eindhoven graduate, did his Master Thesis about food preservation. By accumulating traditional oral knowledge, he looked at a feasible way to bring the knowledge into everyday life.

This resulted in a way to preserve vegetables and fruits without using the refrigerator. This has 2 main advantages:

  • You don’t need to put extra energy in your food than is absolutely necessary
  • It looks nice

Jihyun Ryou: “Through the research about the current situation of food preservation, I’ve learned that we hand over the responsibility of taking care of food to the technology, refrigerator. We don’t observe the food any more and don’t understand how to treat it.

Therefore my design looks at re-introducing and re-evaluating traditional oral knowledge of food, which is closer to nature. Furthermore, it aims to bring back the connection between different level of living beings, us as human beings and food ingredients as other living beings.”
