Challenges are expanding in the vast alimentary landscape, and so is the attention to problems and possible solutions.
Globally growing population, scarce resources, consequences of climate change, human pressure on the environment, and social inequalities are some issues that surround us. These conditions generate an urgency for solutions that will help ensure we are able to feed the global population safely.
According to the UNEP Food Waste Index 2021 of the European Commission, around 931 million tons of food waste were generated in 2019 – 61% of which came from households, 26% from food service and 13% from retail. Wasting food is an ethical and economic issue that depletes the environment of limited natural resources.
Within this context, candidates are asked to design a series of new food/drink container(s) for new eating experiences.
The products should be designed from a sustainable perspective and provoke new food consumption scenarios.
Materials, form, function, ergonomics, and innovative user experience should be analyzed and proposed in the design project.
The candidates should include research on the target food culture. The product should be related to healthy diets from sustainable food sources and systems. The food/drinK container could be used at home and/or in different contexts such as an office (like a bento box), restaurant and food delivery services.
The candidate should identify specific circumstances and provide strong visual narratives around the product.APPLY NOW When you submit your project you will receive an immediate confirmation email that your submission was received.
