Healthy Food, Healthy Furniture: the JumpFood Project
Healthy furniture, Low-Toxic Bamboo Furniture for public spaces.
Stadium and sports arenas are the least places to find healthy food and a relaxing nice space to enjoy your favorite sport. Unless you are in Denmark. The Jump Food Project run by Copenhagen Madhus for DGI (Danish Gymnastics and Sports Associations) and in collaboration with Cancer Society is about to change the food culture in the Danish sport arenas.
The Jump Cafe` is a new chain of coffee shops positioned inside stadiums and sports arenas where junk food has been replaced with Jump Food, which as the name suggests, is a healthy and tasty alternative to the traditional junk food often served in sports halls around the country. Hotdogs, fizzy drinks and chips have been replaced with wholegrain sandwiches, salads and fruit smoothies. The Jump Food Project stresses the importance to improve food culture in sport and a healthy lifestyle – both inside and outside the sport life.
The healthy choice with regards to food has been translated even into the interiors. The upgrade in food has meant an upgrade of the space with the choice of eco friendly and modern Danish design. The children corner, for examble, has been furnished with eco friendly bamboo chairs, desks and storage boxes by Danish design studio WeDoWood. The Lilly’s and Geo’s Bamboo Desk Tables and the Bamboo Chest for storing toys and drawings give a fresh modern look as well as being an eco friendly and healthier choice.
Bamboo furniture is a low impact, earth-friendly furniture. Danish furniture has traditionally used Nordic types of wood but the two designers Henrik Thygesen and Sebastian Jorgensen use bamboo, which recirculates far more CO2 than Scandinavian wood. The amount of glue in WeDoWood products have been reduced offering a positive effect on the indoor climate – low-toxic furniture. Last but not least the good thing about this Danish design bamboo collection is that it`s a nice piece of furniture that you don’t want to get rid of . That`s sustainability!
