Future Folds

In contemporary food culture, our closeness with natural materials outside of what is offered by supermarkets remain fairly limited. The ease in which we obtain our groceries have made us pickier about our choices, and the industry’s handling of food has created a hypocrisy where we grow even more detached from what we consume. By exploring the materiality of banana leaves which have long been used in South East Asia not only as a cook’s ingredient but also as a utilitarian solution to packaging, Future Folds look at how materials from the past can be used to design for the future.
