et sens

edible futures, 2017

et sens is a culinary mail-order service for consumers to reclaim sensory eating experiences using smells, textures and flavors from the past. The concept is set in 2027 where tactile eating experiences are highly sought after due to rising temperatures, causing a world-wide decline of big agro.

An engineered food, called Nutri Ba, monopolises the food system leverging nutritional value over sensorial eating experiences. et sens reclaims traditional eating experiences by re-introducing sensorial rituals that elevates the Nutri Ba meal. (ergo: et sens to Nutri Ba is what maple syrup is to pancakes).

This work was created in a sponsored graduate design studio called ‘Actionable Matter.’ Taught by Scott Minneman and Marykate Meyerhofer. Sponsored by The Institute for the Future.
