‘Cocoon’ is the winner of Electrolux Design Lab 2009

Swedish design student Rickard Hederstierna from Lund University wins Electrolux Design Lab 2009 with his concept ‘Cocoon’, the meat and fish maker.
‘Cocoon’ is a sustainable response to the world’s growing population and its desire to consume meat and fish. Similar to heating popcorn in a microwave, Cocoon prepares pre-packaged meat and fish dishes by heating muscle cells identified by radio frequency identification (RFID) signals. The signals detect the specific dish and then suggest the required cooking time. This process uses science to create food, lifting a burden on the planet by reducing the need for further intensive farming and fishing.
