Year of project
At the end of their lifecycles, most of the small kitchen appliances increase the volume of electronic waste, which is the fastest growing non-hazardous and hazardous waste stream. My goal is to create a multifunctional system that supports a healthy, sustainable way of food-preparation, consumption and living. With a critical approach and an open-source design this serves as an alternative for reducing the amount of these appliances and therefore the waste-volume of the overspecialized small kitchen appliances that are abundant on the market. My project is a vision an alternative consumer behavior, that creates and uses objects in a sustainable way.
