Noma restaurant in Copenhagen has enlisted the help of Danish architect practice 3XN to help them create an experimental food laboratory in a listed, warehouse building.

The ‘experimentarium’, adjacent to the restaurant, will provide the Noma chefs with a place to develop their innovative skills in Nordic cuisine, with an aesthetic that perfectly encapsulates the raw and simple colors and forms of Nordic design.

With restrictions in place that have prevented Noma from affixing anything onto the walls and floor of the space, the laboratory has been filled with multifunctional, modular storage cabinets that can be adjusted and moved around easily.  The furniture components have all been designed and printed digitally, and slot together like a jigsaw puzzle pieces, without the need for any carpentry.  Additionally, the indoor herb garden has wheels at its base so that it can be moved around the kitchen with ease.

Over the past year, we’ve seen more conceptual examples of designers creating furniture and housing parts that can be digitally printed out on 3D printers with no additional tools or carpentry required for the assembly process – making this a real cost and energy efficient possibility for future, furniture design.  It’s really exciting to see this now being implemented into lifestyle projects, also providing a non-disruptive solution for the improvement of historical sites. – Samantha Fox
