Local River親水蛋几

Mathieu Lehanneur, 法國現代設計師
請注意親水蛋几不是錯字,這是一個茶几,有著植栽蛋屋的茶几,又有水族水缸的茶几,所以我們考慮設計師的命名Local River(意譯:在地的河)以及一整個晚上的思量後,我們決定翻成親水蛋几。
Mathieu Lehanneur將養耕共生系統融入到設計中,設計出可放置在居家空間的迷你生態循環系統,這不僅是個有趣的家庭裝飾品,同時兼具水族、植栽與室內綠化的功能。
親水蛋几(Local River)的本體是個可供水族生長的水族箱型茶几,水族箱上方的圓形洞口可擺置植栽的蛋屋,也就養耕共生系統。利用水耕種植法來提供室內綠化,並做水質淨化,這整個親水蛋屋就成為一個小型的養耕共生系統。

Local River
by Harry / April 7, 2008

Local River is the "home storage unit for fish and greens" as conceived by Mathieu Lehanneur with Anthony van den Bossche. Inspired by the Locavores, a group of culinary adventurers who eat foods produced in a radius of 100 miles around their city, Local River anticipates the growing influence of this group (the word 'locavore' made its first appearance in an American dictionary in 2007) by proposing a home storage unit for live freshwater fish combined with a mini vegetable patch. This DIY (GYO?) fish-farm-cum-kitchen-garden is based on the principle of aquaponics coupled with the exchange and interdependence of two living organisms - plants and fish. The plants extract nutrients from the nitrate-rich dejecta of the fish. In doing so they act as a natural filter that purifies the water and maintains a vital balance for the eco-system in which the fish live. The same technique is used on large-scale pioneer aquaponics/fish-farms, which raise tilapia (a food fish from the Far East) and lettuce planted in trays floating on the surface of ponds.
"Local River responds to everyday needs for fresh food that is 100% traceable. It bets on a return to favour of farm-raised freshwater fish (trout, eel, perch, carp, etc...), given the dwindling supplies of many saltwater species due to over-fishing. It also demonstrates the capacity of fish-farmers to deliver their stock live to a private consumer as a guarantee of optimum freshness - impossible in the case of saltwater fish that has been netted."

"Local River aims to replace the decorative 'TV aquarium' by an equally decorative but also functional 'refrigerator-aquarium'. In this scenario, fish and greens cohabit for a short time in a home storage unit before being eaten by their keepers, the end-players in an exchange cycle within a controlled ecosystem."
