Analogue sorting machine for separating harvest

In today’s society where big farms are getting bigger and the distance between people and agriculture is just growing. It’s important to take a step back to the roots and value the intimate relationship we had with agriculture and small-scale farming. A system where we could produce more without monocultures, close to the consumer. Triör is a fully analogue sorting machine designed for separating harvest when co-cropping on a small-scale farm. With the help of gravity, the machine separates round shapes like beans from more irregular shapes like wheat or rye grains. The machine in itself is an exploration in production techniques and materials. Looking into how modern methods like water cutting, traditional woodworking techniques and material choices affect the overall assembly.
