We like simplicity, neatness. This time we turn your attention to the Urban Survival Kit, a product aimed at kids – it is a simple box supposed to serve as an education tool in increasing the awareness of hunger in urban areas, and to give the young’uns a good example for the future.

It’s been designed to teach and entertain, to engage the senses and the mind. The box is made of OSB and acrylic mass (which provides water-resistance). Inside are contained 12 tubes of different sizes – first-aid kits, gardening tools, seeds (found in the smallest tubes, later to serve as pots).

A cool idea, which not only looks great but also teaches children about responsibility, gives them a sense of satisfaction and explains where food comes from (no, not the fridge!) in a fun and non-intrusive manner. The experience of hard work teaches respect towards what’s on one’s plate and to mind the wealth it represents.
