Urban Harvest Series
Sebastiaan Sennema’s Urban Harvest Series is not just about engaging urbanites with green fingers and a lack of garden. It’s about integrating nature and cultivating a consciousness of its mechanisms into our daily home life. The unit combines an oak table for potting and preparation, a terracotta cooling tray for storing harvested produce, and a new, aesthetic take on the traditional ‘worm bin’ for the natural composting of kitchen waste. Together the components encourage the user to think about larger environmental issues while gardening, such as water consumption, food waste and recycling. And so, this unit is more than a possession; it’s a philosophy.
