rianne koens: peelpride

dutch designer rianne koens has created ‘peelpride’, a set of kitchen tools which capture the aroma infused in the top layer
of fruit or vegetable peels. the skin consist of two segments; a bottom white bitter one, and a top which contains the scents we associate
with each food. the first utensil ‘toppeeler’, cuts off only the fragrant layer. the drying is done in slated stackable containers,
allowing air to surround the drying slices. once brittle, the peels are placed into a special dispenser outfitted with a grinder.
after all the peels have been ground, a perforated bottom allows one to shake the granules onto food or into drinks. ‘peelsieve’ is a filter
which can be placed on glasses or teapots, allowing the taste to infuse into liquid without leaving any fragments behind.
