Càlid: Living surfaces

Intelligent tableware kit created to foster the guest experience when eating.


Càlid bowl is a thermo-active materials based basin that opens when pouring warm soup inside, recreating the effect of blooming flowers in spring. The unexpected reaction of an inert container makes this element alive in front of the guest empowering the surprise effect and cognitive capacity of the guests.

Càlid borns from a Research thesis around 'The Experience of Eating in Higher Cuisine'. 


Project made as Nicole Vindel final theses with El Celler de Can Roca restaurant at Elisava School of Design.
