Ekokook is a kitchen concept from Faltazi, which along with usual amenities blends in thoughtful ways of using and discarding various products used in a kitchen. Along with a cooking surface with extractor hood, a steam oven, storage facilities for food/utensils, a sink and even includes a refrigeration system. The interesting part of this project is that there is also a facility for converting organic waste matter into manure right inside this system.
Ekokook includes pots for growing plants or herbs which can be provided with nutrients from the decomposed matter produced. Even the water from washed vegetables do not go wasted. It gets collected in jars [kept below] through an outlet that can be reused to water the plants while soapy water gets drained from a separate channel altogether. There is also machinery within the installation for crushing discarded cans, plastic bottles, glass bottles separately to be collected in unique chambers for removal. With such intelligent provisions Ekokook does easily portray what an eco-kitchen should be like.What do you say?
