Chefs beware – a group of second-year industrial design students from Poland may have come up with a scheme to replace you with a robot. From the recently established School of Form in Poznań, in cooperation with four project partners (Lidl, Amica, Concordia Design and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute), they have created the Let’s Cook the Future installation, featuring KUKA, a robot, who – in front of visitors – will cook a meal, which can be tasted afterwards.
Let’s Cook the Future is part of MOST, a showcase of forward-thinking products and installations, which Tom Dixon successfully launched during Salone del Mobile in Milan last year, pulling in 30,000 visitors to view 108 brands and designers. It will appear this year at the Museum of Science and Technology against a backdrop of historic exhibits also based on technological innovation.
Supervised by MOST exhibitor Oskar Zieta and sociologist Agata Nowotny, Let’s Cook The Future aims to help students expand their knowledge of robotics and seek design inspirations to create a completely different approach to food design.
