FreskoA modular storage for fruit & vegetables
Inventing new ways of braiding and weaving according to new consumer needs, to create new structures. Challenging the stability of natural fibres and exploring their full potential as a versatile solution by mixing them with natural binders. Thus, a novel robust material can be produced that can be transformed into containers, boxes, and other applications.
Fresko is a modular storage for fruit & vegetables that allows the user to bring nature inside the house through the combination of natural fibre combined with wood. The partnership aims to embrace natural fibres and traditional materials by weaving them using traditional techniques. Emphasising the combination of these raw materials and highlighting their use in our everyday lives. Fresko seeks to change the common perception towards the food culture and the environmental impact of our choices. A system based on ancestral conservation techniques working with talented crafters, using their knowledge and expertise to revive and spread techniques that are in danger of being lost. The Project uses a combination of natural, locally sourced materials with diligent design.
