ETNISK

Sustainable food storage

ETNISK is a perishable food storage concept that combines various traditional techniques to extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables without consuming energy. Southern Spain, known for exporting fresh fruits and vegetables, was the source of inspiration for ETNISK. The idea to recreate perfect containers that keep fresh food fresh without consuming energy. Different containers provide the ideal storage conditions for different types of fruit and vegetables, depending on the climate in which they are grown.

JURY STATEMENT

This design draws its inspiration from traditional techniques of food storage and preservation. The designer quite rightly asks whether modern technology is always the best solution – especially when we look at the problem holistically. The rediscovery of tried and tested traditions has the potential to help us solve many of the thorniest problems of resource management.

WINNER STATEMENT

Receiving an iF Award is a reward for the big effort designers do to evolve towards sustainability. Understood in much more complex way, because it is about good design for better futures. Thanks to iF and Jose Luis Lapaz for knowing that and giving support to this project.
