Studio 1: The Open Kitchen
PROPOSAL FOR A UTENSIL LIBRARY
The desire to own less and instead, share and rent more, is a phenomenon and a growing trend among a younger generation with a highly mobile and flexible lifestyle. The experience of using a product becomes more important than the need to own it. This opens up completely new possibilities to consume in a flexible and sustainable way. This analysis leads to products that are not intended for individual ownership, but for common use. The products must be able to withstand heavy wear and tear, be hygienic and be easy to clean and repair. The design challenge is to completely rethink everyday products used in the kitchen.
Luisa Kahlfeldt, born 1991 in Berlin, recently graduated from Central Saint Martins in London with a BA ( Hons) in Product Design. Here, her final year bachelor theses already dealt with the topic of collaborative consumption and its impact on product design. During her studies, Luisa gained practical experiences at an internship with Studio Werner Aisslinger in Berlin. She has also worked as a studio assistant for Bethan Laura Wood in London.
