TOPIC: KITCHEN OF MATERIALS
Kitchen of materials
Without material, no packaging. But how do you choose the right material and ensure the least possible environmental impact? How do you deal sustainably with the use of raw materials?
In order to choose the right material, you have to know what requirements the material has to meet. Important factors are the product that has to be packaged, the packaging process, the end user/consumer, and the location where the product-packaging combination will be used. If you properly analyze these factors, you will end up with a design brief that you can use to select the right packaging material.
The kitchen will be the central point. Everyday a workshop will be held at the kitchen block. The materials that are treated herein are: plastic, paper and cardboard, glass and metal. Additionally, during these workshops another materials expert is invited to unleash the substantive knowledge.
People of Tomorrow ensures that the kitchen is decorated with “packaging ingredients” from the materials during the workshops. For instance plastic granules, chips and samples of the materials.
