3R Yatai / Product

3R Yatai

Yatai is an alternative form of kitchen with mobility. The most important issue for cooking on yatai is the source of water. In Asia, raining days are covering almost half the year and are capable for our idea to tile carbon filters on the roof on yatai. Rain drops are falling on the roof, going through the pipe of recycling system, being boiled to steam and cooled down to be usable water. This would be the easy way to have clean source of water in night market space. The product reprented the 3R for water usage, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
