Drinking and eating are a necessity. Hydrana symbolizes a first return to a relative comfort. It allows users to eat and drink following a catastrophe.
It brings basic energy, the fuel to go on while facing difficulties. The aftermath capsule can either be suspended or placed on a tripod to avoid humidity and small animals. It responds to essential needs for five people. It includes a water filtering system on the top (6 liters) to provide drinking water with a tap. 5 racks underneath, fed with water from the top, are used to grow seeds, which can be eaten five days later. A final rack at the bottom is used to grow seeds for a longer period of time, for plantation allowing then more consistent fooding. Hydrana is covered by a bag going from the bottom to the top to accelerate seeds growing acting as a greenhouse.
This project is part of the exhibition "Survival" form L’École de design Nantes Atlantique - Salone Internazionale del Mobile à Milan from April 7 to 13, 2014 - Salone Satellite stand B-37.
