    Enter Food Ink, the pop-up fine dining experience that boasts of being the world’s first 3-D-printing restaurant. All food, utensils and furniture are created by 3-D printers.

    Founded by Antony Dobrzensky, the firm is a collaboration between architects, chefs, designers, engineers, technologists and artists which creates setting and menu in different locations around the world. This mobile restaurant celebrated its inauguration in London in July 2016. Culinary advisors Joel Castanye, formerly of Michelin 3-star elBulli, and Mateu Blanch formulate multi-course meals, 3D-printed before guests’ eyes. Dutch company by Flow produced the printers used for food preparation.

    Design advisor Arthur Mamou-Mani devised the furniture collection for Food Ink. It was built using Silkworm, a Grasshopper3D plugin which allows manipulation of the printed design’s internal geometries for stability and weight-bearing capacity. It was co-written by Mamou-Mani, Adam Holloway, Karl Kjelstrup-Johnson and Andrei Jipa.

    Beyond taste, Food Ink provides diners with virtual reality headsets, wall-to-wall visual projections and music. Its 2017 world tour will include stops across North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
