Ice Cream Concept Parlour


The Ice Cream Concept Parlour by Thai design student Ploenpit Nittaramorn is a low-tech kit that encourages people to ditch the ready meals and get creative in the kitchen.

The parlour provides the tools – including a lemon squeezer, paddles and a pestle and mortar – for people to combine their fresh ingredients before pouring the mixture onto a frozen marble board and churning it by hand. The frozen surface freezes the mixture in minutes – handy for the time-poor individual.

The project was designed to explore our relationship with ready-made produce. Ploenpit says: “People have become less connected to the food they eat and where it’s made because the shortcut is available in every local supermarket.”

For more frozen delights, see the report The Ice Cream Dream.
