‘Save Food From The Fridge’ is one of the latest projects by Jihyun Ryou which focuses on food preservation using traditional methods. Ryou has crafted a series of food storage contraptions that counter the hidden, black box technology of the refrigerator by relying on “traditional oral knowledge [that] has been accumulated from experience.” Using basic materials like maple wood, beeswax and sand, her food-storage devices regulate light, dark, dryness and humidity in order to preserve foods.

According to Ryou, “Through the objects of everyday life, design can introduce traditional oral knowledge into people’s lives through their experience of using it. Objects make invisible knowledge evident.”
