Cornucopia

2009

Credits: Amit Zoran and Marcelo Coelho

Cornucopia is a concept design for digital gastronomy, a futuristic cooking methodology based on digital technologies. We explore how science fiction and actual technologies merge with kitchen tools to create this new design space for gastronomy. The Virtuoso Mixer, the Digital Fabricator, and the Robotic Chef were conceptualized to enable more flexibility and control for each of the most important elements of cooking: mixing ingredients, modeling food shapes, and transforming edible matter from one state to another.
