The Netherlands – ArtEZ Institute of the Arts graduate Nienke van de Pol has created a collection of objects that encourage consumers to make their own medicine.
The Kitchen Lab features several vessels that can be used to create homeopathic remedies. The collection is accompanied by a book containing step-by-step instructions on how to use natural ingredients to cure illnesses.
‘With the Kitchen Lab collection I want people to learn that plants and herbs on our doorsteps have preventative and curative medical properties,’ says van de Pol. ‘By exploring Kitchen Lab you will find how easy it is to make your own self-care remedies for everyday ailments.’
Consumers are becoming increasingly fascinated with the science behind the creation of pharmaceutical and beauty products. To find out why, come to our spring/summer 2013 Trend Briefing.
