Kitchen appliances are multiplying in our households. But how much longer can we afford all these for resource reasons? The COOLING BRICKS are a ceramic cooling vessel collection. They bring the archaic principle of evaporative cooling into today's kitchen. After testing, cellulose fibers and sawdust were chosen to be mixed with clay. When the clay is fired, they leave capillaries that transport the water upwards. A suitable structure increases the surface area, allowing more water to evaporate. The cooling vessels lower the temperature by up to 10 °C. They keep fruits and vegetables fresh, but also yogurt, butter and cheese can be stored.
