Uproot is a model for changing the way we buy, cook, & eat our food. 🍎
Meals are sourced hyper–locally, prepared in regionally–inspired dishes, and sold with durable reusable containers.
Uproot began with a simple question: how can design promote sustainable product life cycles? The answer: By redefining the relationship between producer & consumer. Food was the key context: it's a functional necessity, but one with huge environmental, economical, political, and cultural implications.
Uproot was the culmination of a year—long senior thesis including a research paper & exhibition.
