The world’s first 3D-printing restaurant opens its doors to an exclusive gathering of guests at fashion studio ElektroCouture, in the high-tech heart of the world’s hippest city.

By now you’ve heard of 3D-printing, but did you know that you could soon be downloading dinner and getting that pizza delivered by email?

Presenting Food Ink – The World’s First 3D-Printing Restaurant.

At these utterly unique and fully interactive “print-out pop-ups,” all the furniture, all the utensils — and yes, all the food! — is produced through live 3D-printing, right before your eyes.

Following its successful world premiere in London this past summer, where it was received by international media and the public with rave reviews, Food Ink is now bringing the world’s most futuristic gourmet experience to the world’s hippest city.

The innovative dinner series is being hosted by visionary high-tech fashion house ElektroCouture, the world’s first agency to pioneer bespoke electronic wearable technology for the fashion industry.

This December 14-15-16-17 at 20:00, ElektroCouture will host 10 very special dinner guests each evening at its future-fashion studio for this one-of-a-kind gastronomy event. Guests will watch with delight and astonishment as the most advanced technology creates edible art right before their eyes.

The entire dinner is literally printed on the table by a team of futuristic new machines called “Foodini,” invented by Barcelona startup Natural Machines, working in harmony with the talented hands of our world-class chefs.

The lucky few guests will be greeted on arrival with champagne and a variety of 3D-printed hors d’oeuvres. They will then be led to our freshly 3D-printed chairs and table, where together they will embark on an eleven-course, multi-sensory journey through the future of food.

The dinner includes award-winning wines paired with each course, and a surprise dish which has been created just for the host city of Berlin. In the ideal fusion of man and machine, all the ingredients are freshly prepared on the spot by master chef Mateu Blanch, on loan from one of Spain’s most acclaimed new Michelin-star restaurants, La Boscana.

Chef Blanch worked previously at several of Spain’s leading Michelin-star restaurants including El Celler de Can Roca, currently ranked the world’s top restaurant. The menu has been developed alongside Chef Joel Castanye, who worked with the legendary Ferran Adria developing innovative dishes for the catering division of triple-Michelin-star elBulli during the time it was ranked the world’s number one restaurant.

At this future food experience, the tables, chairs and lamps are some of the world’s first functional 3D-printed furniture, created specifically for Food Ink by French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani.

Guests will be dining with fully 3D-printed utensils designed by Polish artist Iwona Lisiecka and 3D-printed by homegrown Catalan startup BCN3D Technologies. Drinks are sipped and treats are scooped from 3D-printed cups and plates by Italian company WASP.

The dinner goes even beyond 3D: Virtual Reality headsets are worn during the first course, wall-to-wall visual projections surround the space, and even the music is composed by Artificial Intelligence. There are also live musical performances throughout the dinner by the band Pardon Moi, who will be creating a futuristic soundscape especially for this event.

Dinner will also be livestreamed online to the world, so even those unable to secure a seat at the table can still marvel at the exquisite creations being magically 3D-printed out of thin air. Our lucky guests, however, will be a part of history as they enjoy a literal front row seat at this revolutionary moment in fine dining.

Food Ink is the first initiative ever to present 3D-printed food with so many elements and anywhere approaching this level. This event represents a major step forward in technology, food, and design, all in a single evening. ElektroCouture and Food Ink are delighted to achieve this visionary collaboration and to share this historic occasion with our very special guests.

Food Ink is both a completely new type of restaurant and a food-technology brand which has been created by Antony Dobrzensky and Marcio Barradas.

The goal of Food Ink is to use the universal language of food as a fun and accessible way to promote awareness about the amazing possibilities of 3D-printing and other promising new technologies. Our dinners serve as a platform for conversation about how these emerging technologies are rapidly challenging and changing the way we eat, create, share and live.

We are now bringing this extraordinary new restaurant format to a number of innovative cities around the world, with upcoming locations and dates to be announced shortly. Contact us at, and feed your curiosity at our website and on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.
