Spicy Case was an Art Driven Innovation pilot, which means that the project originated from an art project, namely ‘a New Design Habit’ by Cecilia Polonara. Together with In4Art, the art project was turned into a social project under the name Spicy Case, in which the team investigated the notion of packaging, the possibilities for reducing waste while adding food value and the potential of food for spice ceremonies and experiences.

The pilot resulted in a first test batch of Christmas offerings for 2019. This gave insight into the further needs and requirements to upscale the concept. Cecilia Polonara and In4Art decided to choose different paths to do so, exploring separately the path of reducing packaging and reducing waste.

Urban Peels is the new name under which In4Art continues the project.
