The project addresses the domestic overuse of refrigerating technologies for food preservation, enlightening also the nutritional changes of food by incorrect preservation. To do this, the 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 levels of living beings, we as human beings and food ingredients as other living beings.


Jihyun Ryou, a Korean designer based in Amsterdam is the conceiver of the project.


Through the objects of everyday life, design can introduce traditional oral knowledge into people’s lives through their experience of using it. Objects make invisible knowledge evident.


change of perspective, improvement of conservation skills, stricter relationship with food
