The Tomorrow cabinet completes the Urban Harvest Series
The Tomorrow cabinet
A collaboration project between Sebastiaan Sennema & Martijn Koomen
Before large conglomerates started mass producing genetically modified seed, famers used to conserve seeds by saving the best produce from their own crop. The tomorrow cabinet indulges in this value of saving seeds and rejuvenating the knowledge of preparing them for a healthy harvest in years to come.
Each seed variety follows a process to prepare the seed before it can be put into the ground. Some seeds, like beans, only need to be dried while others like tomatoes need to go through a fermentation process. Some seeds are so small they need to be sieved through a strainer before they can be collected. By bridging the understanding of processing heirloom seeds with an easy to control atmosphere, the tomorrow cabinet aims to distil this knowledge into tools that will simplify this method of working.
The tomorrow table is hand made from natural materials to maintain the integrity and aesthetic which agriculture originates from.
Collaborating with Martijn was very insightful, bouncing ideas with another induvidual only broadens the possibilities of where the idea can go as well as working in more detail. I sort Martijns expertise because he had a understanding about timbers and ceramics and the skills to work quickly to realise such a project.
