Save Food From The Frigde: A Design Approach to Food Preservation


Korean designer Jihyun Ryou reflected on the fact that refrigerators not only waste electricity, but instead of preserving food, they often increase the amount of waste. Because they’re bought and forgotten. And not every problem needs to be solved with high-tech, many things have already been invented.

She interviewed the older generation about their ways of storing food and created minimalist and functional solutions.

“Observing the food and therefore changing the notion of food preservation, we could find the answer to current situations such as the overuse of energy and food wastage. My design is a tool to implement that knowledge in a tangible way and slowly it changes the bigger picture of society. I believe that once people are given a tool that triggers their minds and requires a mental effort to use it, new traditions and new rituals can be introduced into our culture,” she wrote.
