TofuDrink, a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional Chinese production process of tofu, has been simplified and conceived to be used during special events. It’s an unconventional way to combine a cultural and multisensorial experience through an original source of entertainment, which is at the same time a drink preparation & service system. By transforming the traditional instruments into an intuitive installation appropriate to production needs in small scale, it allows people to have some simple interactions. They can see and enjoy the whole tofu drink cycle in real time, from soya beans to the tasty final encountering with the drink.
Wood, glass and cotton, all the key materials of TofuDrink, are selected according to the natural essence of the soya drink. This is according to our greatest aim, which is to use design to let people enjoy food culture and keep people in contact with the ecological dimensions of life.
