Sustainable cultivation through active care and climate drawers
In order to empower sustainable cultivation of herbs and vegetables, the Kruddör system is made up of several elements that stimulate and support the active care that growers provide for their ingredients. The first element of the Kruddör system is a toolkit that improves the understanding of how healthy ingredients are during the growth process. An extensive sensor, basic care-taking tools and interactive growing guides are provided to stimulate people to take sustainable care of their produce. The second element of Kruddör is the modular climate drawers system, which is to be used in existing IKEA kitchens. These drawers regulate temperature, light intensity, humidity and soil nutrients to accommodate the cultivation of various fruits, herbs, vegetables and other food that requires specific climates to be able to grow successfully.
