ROOTS: An hourglass inspired root vegetable container which encourages end users to utilise their root vegetables to the full extent.
Food waste has risen to be one of the world’s biggest problems; it is a subject of environmental, economic and social concern. Most of us have adopted to make our planet to be more sustainable and it has integrated into our lifestyles.
Storing root vegetables in sand is not a new concept; vegetables are stored in among sand in root cellars by our forefathers. Vegetables are kept away from moisture and humidity is regulated when they are covered in sand, therefore, they don’t rot.
The beautiful hourglass inspired round shapes makes Roots stands out. It is a pleasant feeling whilst watching the stream of sand fall through the small filter holes onto your root vegetables. When Roots is rotated 180 degrees clockwise or anti-clockwise, a satisfying click sound is revealed to stop it rotating any further.
Roots will become a talking point of the home kitchen as a decoration and a root vegetable container.
