Despite the fact that most people in the developed world have refrigerators at home, we continue to waste food at an incredible rate. Leave it to Italians, in this case the group Sottoscala Design, to experiment with new ways of storing and preserving food. To that end they’ve created the Urban Survival Kit, a two step countertop kit that stores, cooks and reuses food and is indispensable when you consider the hectic pace of urban life.
Made from sustainable materials, this two-step countertop kit stores, cooks and reuses food thanks to a dryer and smoker. Eolo uses the power of the sun, the wind and silica gel to naturally dry food, while at the same time protecting it from insects and animals. Efesto has a base in which to burn plant materials and an upper section for food. The conical top promotes the circulation of smoke to conserve food while imparting a delicious aroma and characteristic color. Simple, elegant and practical, in both form and function the ceramic and wood Urban Survival Kit demonstrates Sottoscala’s understanding of sustainability as the use of renewable materials and the creation of long-lasting household objects.
