London, World’s first 3d printing restaurant – plates and glasses 3d printed in clay by WASP
FoodInk – London
FoodInk opened in London the world’s first restaurant completely produced through 3d printers. Tables, chairs, utensils and, above all, food: an immersive additive manufacturing experience. We couldn’t miss this appointment between technology and food, so we left for London with a DeltaWASP 20 40 and one Clay Kit with us.
Marcio Barradas from FoodInk got in touch with us first, interested in our experience in porcelain 3d-printing. With enthusiasm, we took up the challenge and, in a short time from the opening, we produced an assorted collection of glasses and plates, cooked and glazed, for this technological cuisine’s dishes.
WASP prints clay!
With our Clay Kit you can plan an unlimited assortment of objects, ready to be printed in porcelain, as you can see in the video below. Our clay extruder works by pressure, the mixture is extruded under control, then it follows the classic ceramic procedure: drying, cooking, glazing.
The event in London
Three dinners in three consecutive evenings, strictly behind closed doors, to an exclusive group of guests that didn’t want to miss this pioneering tasting experience developed by two brilliant chef, Mateu Blanch and Joel Castanye from the Spanish restaurant La Boscana.
Printing demonstrations, augmented reality and much more for an event that will take place again soon, because the restaurant will also offer 3d traveling dinners. In October, the only Italian date in Rome.
Many personalities met up during the evenings, from Arthur Mamou-Mani, partner of Zaha Hadid, project manager for tables and chairs.
A project that achieved a wide visibility and attracted big media interest. Here we are on Repubblica.it with Cristiano Pesca and Federica Ditta from WASP, that printed for us porcelain plates and glasses with a DeltaWASP 20 40 printer.
