The Spoons Meal

A few weeks ago we hosted a meal at Quilon, a Michelin started Indian restaurant at which the guests used our spoons of varying materials to experience the taste of materials

Accounts of the meal and the project have since appeared in the following places:

The Financial Times, the UCL Engineering website, The Guardian food blog and New Zealand National Radio.



We are currently working on more research into taste, texture and materials, alongside turning the spoons into a product that will hopefully enter the market in the near future. For more information, please contact us on
