Amalia Shem Tov — a graduate of the Shenkar College in Ramat Gan, Israel, designs a collection of ancient cooking utensils that are supposed to strongly contrast the tech-dependent kitchen of the modern age. Its aim is to inspire individuals to work with their hands and put effort into what they are making. The line is appropriately dubbed 'Roots' and is there "to help people rediscover their primary culinary roots."
Amalia Shem Tov's line of ancient cooking utensils includes a millstone, hot baking stones and a mortar and pestle. As these instruments require increased input from their user and operate in parallel with the technologies of the modern age, the Tel Aviv-based designer is able to call attention to the sizable gap between analog and digital.
