Do you remember byFlow? Back in April, this team of Dutch 3D printed food innovators became the initially in the world to open up a pop-up restaurant serving 3D printed food. Called Food Ink, it served six lucky guests a 3D printed five course meal during the 3D Food Printing Conference in Venlo, the Netherlands. To follow up on that good results, Food Ink has been working complex to go on a world tour that reaches the world’s largest culinary hotspots, and the next date has only been announced. Food Ink can set up outside The Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London of 25 to 27 July, where a nine-course 3D printed dinner can be served.
It is an awe-inspiring initiative that proves that food 3D printing is much additional viable than frequently idea. At the core of the byFlow initiative is their astounding Focus 3D printing device. The startup is owned by brother and sister Nina and Floris Hoff, their father Frits and friend Jeanine Hendriks. As Nina previously announced, their pop-up restaurant proves that food 3D printing unquestionably has a next in exclusive restaurants for its competence to manufacture fun, diverse and tasty dishes. But food 3D printing devices are far additional than a culinary gimmick too, she introduced. “Food 3D printing has worthwhile practical advantages,” she argued. “For instance for individuals who have complexy chewing or swallowing their food.”

But, much of Food Ink’s good results can in addition rely on the expertise of Spanish chef Mateo Blanch of Michelin-starred restaurant La Boscana in Bellvis, Spain. Blanch made the meals in Venlo and can in addition be travelling to London for this extraordinary event. There, he can be 3D print the dishes live with assist of an international team of cooks, artists and technologists, that include other Michelin-starred elBulli veteran Joel Castanye, with whom Blanch runs La Boscana.
So what kinds of food can be expected? Whilst no full menu is obviously on the market now, the Focus 3D printing device works most with paste-like ingredients, such as hummus, chocolate mousse, smashed peas, dough and a variety of cheeses. All are loaded into cartridges and extruded into layered structures. Various cooking techniques – such as baking – can be applied afterwards. Among others, air caviar, fish and chips, Caesar’s flower of life, mystic prawns, steak tartars, love bites and 3D Boscana can be expected in London.

And to fish the experience, much of the restaurant itself – that include tables, chairs and lamps – can in addition be 3D printed. All were turn it intod by Zaha Hadid-protégé and architect Arthur Mamou-Mani, via open-source Grasshopper plug-in Silkworm. Incidentally, these 3D printed stools are in addition on the market as a Kickstarter reward to backers of an architectural project for Burning Man. The utensils utilized during the meals have been turn it intod by Polish artist Iwona Lisiecka, while a team of filmmanufacturers can provide a visual show and music during dinner.
But as this is such a high-tech concept, there’s a lot additional going on behind the scenes than in a normal kitchen. In addition involved are startups 3D Samba, 3DChef, and London’s 3DFP Ventures, while businessmen Antony Dobrzensky and Marcio Barradas played a crucial role in developing the concept. “Our goal is to work with the most createers and chefs to turn it into nutritious, delicious and healthy food and an awe-inspiring multi-sensory experience,” Dobrzensky explained. “With the pop-up, we want to announce to the world that this concept is now viable, get individuals excited and hopefully grow the concept into a scalable business. It is a much advantageous way than sitting in a boardroom in a suit producing a tedious pitch.”

Indeed, the tour is in fact little additional than a really ambitious sales pitch. As Dobrezensky explained, their next trips to Berlin, Dubai, Seoul, Rome, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Sydney and Reykjavik are all meant to draw attention of investors and prominent figures in the culinary industry. Hopefully, it can enable them to turn it into a viable brand and a chain of permanent Food Ink restaurants. “We’re all aware that the amount of innovation around us and the speed with that it changes is accelerating,” Dobrzensky said. “It is really amazing and empowering but in addition a bit disorienting and dreadful for a number of individuals. We want to turn it into a positive environment to get individuals considering of a few of the complex issues we will have to navigate in order to sustainably move into the next.”

And why shouldn’t it work? Ice bars and dark dining venues that overload the senses are in addition a massive hit, and Food Ink just takes things into a additional technological way. “The restaurant create is meant to show the present and the next blurring and dissolving in our midst, only as science fiction and reality frequently blurs. We’re attempting to provide, really literally, a taste of the next,” Dobrezensky said. “The innovation is yet initially generation and given the speed of development I’ve seen, in of four years this type of 3D printing can be ereallywhere. ”
But if you are in Britain and getting an appetite for 3D printed food, we’ve got a few bad news. The London event is fully booked may already, so you can have to travel around the world for a 3D printed snack. For additional information on the follow-up events, store an eye on the byFlow website.
