Project Nourished

Originally started in a warehouse on Skid Row of Los Angeles, Project Nourished is a public-benefit initiative with a goal of maximizing therapeutic and utilitarian qualities of consumables while limiting environmental effects and the use of natural resources.

The project is built on a platform, which consists of embedded tableware, AI framework and schematics for food, beverage and medicine. Its experience is designed to heighten sensations and simultaneously produce therapeutic effects by altering the motions, forms, colors, scents and temperature of consumables—food, beverage and medicine—through use of proven and emerging technologies.

It was founded on a premise that the potential of consumables has not been fully realized and there needs to be a greater emphasis on redefining the food system. Along with our global and local community involvements, our vision is to diversify methods of consumption and extending the utility of food, beverage and medicine.
