The Modular Mechanics Kitchen

About this project

Commissioned by Grizedale Arts in the Lake District, this project began with an investigation into John Ruskin and contemporary rural materials. The entire working kitchen is constructed from ‘plastic wood’ a material made in the countryside primarily for farmers and primarily from farm waste.
