Transformative Appetite

We developed a concept of transformative appetite, where edible 2D films made of common food materials (protein, fiber or starch) can transform into 3D food during cooking. This transformation process is triggered by water, and it is strongly compatible with the ‘flat packaging’ concept for substantially reducing shipping costs and storage space. Users can customize food shape transformations through a pre-defined simulation platform, and then fabricate these designed patterns using additive manufacturing. By working closely with a chef, we created many magnificent shape-changing food, which could enrich the dining experience and address the needs of the aging population.
