We live in a world where urban societies depend on linear systems which are based on fossil fuel-driven tools and that waste precious energy resources. In the project "Analogue Ways" at IKDC in Lund Itook a closer look into our daily habits to find a more sustainable way of living. this led to the following question: how could we save energy which is used during cooking processes? ‘hotpot’ gives a possible answer to it. Made of cork, ‘hotpot’ is designed for off-the-stove slow cooking. It encourages people to change their cooking habits and save energy at the same time. to use it, the food should be pre-heated first on the stove and then placed inside the ‘hotpot’ which does the rest of the cooking. The insulation properties of the cork allow the food to keep on simmering even after being removed from the stove. By the end of the process, the food is tender and ready to be served.
