A beautiful and functional piece of kitchen ware, the ‘Eco Cooler’ by DeWeNe (Designs We Need) [2] was introduced at the London Design Festival [3] earlier last week. Cressida Granger, founder of DeWeNe [2] gave a short presentation at London Design Festival’s sustainability hub, Greengaged [4]. In addition to their inspiring Hook & Go trolley [2], Cressida showed their most recent project, this hand-made terracotta fruit bowl and root vegetable storage pot.

The product was a collaboration with Royal College of Art graduate designer, David Weatherhead [5] and designed to utilize natural cooling methods to keep produce fresh. When water is poured into the base it is absorbed by the terracotta material, evaporating and cooling the temperature of the bowl and its contents. DeWeNe [2] also notes that the Eco Cooler can act as a mini-larder.
