Studio Gorm's Flow2 Kitchen Pod
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of indoor plants despite my uncanny ability to kill anything green. Some of the best indoor plant solutions aren’t just decorative, but functional, providing edible herbs and vegetables. Enter Studio Gorm’s Flow2 Kitchen, a concept by Oregon designers John Arndt and Wonhee Jeong, in which waste kitchen products are used to grow plants, all within a smart and compact module.
The kitchen pod is not just functional, but serves as a conduit that siphons waste water and other nutrients to plant pods on the countertop. Dish water drops onto plants in the terracotta containers, which are fertilized by food scraps, broken down by worms. Meanwhile, the double-walled terracotta pods naturally cool their contents. acts as a refrigerator, cooling the inside as water evaporates through the outer wall. Check out more on their website- Flow2 Kitchen is currently on display as part of the Call and Response exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Oregon until the end of October.
