I had to post about this thoughtful and unique project by Jihyun Ryou.
The project is called Saving Food from the Refrigerator and the design is just as graceful as the concept. Seriously, I love it and want to build these gorgeous and functional storage shelves in my kitchen immediately!
Here is an excerpt from the project statement that really struck a chord with me as well as sums up the inspiration. “Through the research into the current situation of food preservation, I’ve learned that we hand over the responsibility of taking care of food to the technology, the refrigerator. We don’t observe the food any more and we don’t understand how to treat it.”
I think not observing the food and understanding how to treat it relates across the board from the meat industry to dairy and really every aspect of how our food is created and processed these days. Read more about Jihyun Ryou’s work and learn more here.
