Korean designer Jihyun Ryou has re-imagined food storage by developing a fridge-less and artful way to keep food fresh that uses no energy. The ‘Save Food From the Refrigerator’ project focuses on food preservation, with a collection of clever objects designed to be eco-friendly and avoid waste. There is a shelf for storing root vegetables like carrots and onions that houses them in sand with a glass funnel to add water to it, while an egg shelf has a container that can be filled with water to check their freshness by seeing if they sink or float. Ryou writes:

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.
