The Future of Food is a design project combining research and speculation to explore the future of food on behalf of Toshiba and in collaboration with Chiba University, and Parson's New School. This project identified design opportunities for the internet of things, and how it could facilitate new experiences in relation to food and our changing urban habitat. Food is far from just about taste and nutrition - it is a matter of politics, identity, emotions, traditions, stories, memories, and values.
They determine how we experience flavours together with our senses. With our design concept Food Tab, my team and I distilled these insights into an experience of the urban environment as food source and of making people more aware of senses other than taste involved in experiencing food. I travelled to Tokyo where I presented Food Tab at Toshiba's headquarters, and took part in a design sprint with Chiba University and Parsons New School.
