Francesca Tambussi responds to the overpriced and unsustainable average supermarket with the Hyperburgers Inconvenience Store. The prototype store is designed to serve communities rather than businesses. It is designed to run entirely through consumers.
Consumers can drop by the store to pick up anything they need, and in return, they must drop something of value off, similar to a trading market. The store is reserved for groceries and prepared foods. This is an ideal space for home gardeners to stock shelves for direct-to-consumer sales. To finalize a purchase, shoppers use their phones to pay whoever supplied the food. Each item is linked toa peer-to-peer payment system so the money goes directly to the food supplier.
