Peywand / Modular Spice Rack


As environmental changes become tangible, so does the need to restructure the defective patterns of production and consumption in societies. “Peywand” is a modular spice platform, embedded with the local arts that enables the users to compose it in a way that suits their changing need and desire, to decelerate conspicuous consumption in satisfying new needs. Its production method has less effect on the environment; mostly consisting of biodegradable or recyclable materials while using the power of craftsman’s mussels for most phases. Peywand can also reduce waste by promoting "package free shopping" by supporting jars suitable for bulk shops.
