Multisensorial Gastronomy explores how the eating experience can be enhanced or altered by stimulating the senses using the integration of electronics, light and other stimuli. Developed in collaboration with Michelin chef Juan Marie Arzak, the four design concepts of interactive tableware design concepts – Lunar Eclipse (bowl), Fama (long plate) and Bocado de Luz (serving plate) and the Eye of the Beholder (platter) – react to food placed on the plates or to liquid poured into the bowl.
Far-future design concepts
FOOD is a Probe, a far-future design concept. It is not intended as a production prototype nor will it be sold as a Philips product. Like past Probe design concepts that have stimulated discussion around a range of issues, this concept is testing a possible future – not prescribing one.
