Local River

 

 

My good friend Anthony van den Bossche is the spin doctor to the upcoming Mathieu Lehanneur design show in NYC. Curated by Alexandra Midal at the Artists Space Gallery (on Greene street, of course), the show is called Local River and features a home growth and storage unit for fish and greens–the plants feed off the nitrates left by the fish and in doing so filter the water. Besides being a self-contained eco-system, the idea is to satisfy the demands of locavores (www.locavores.com) who are increasingly concerned with reducing the miles their food has logged. You can’t get fresher, more locally sourced food than this — the project points a way to future small-scale farming…

Deco-func.
