Overview: ENYO is a flexible solution for future food preparation – it enhances the social culinary enjoyment aspect by bringing cooking back to the table.
What’s This: ENYO celebrates the social aspect of cooking and dining by gathering people around the table. The furniture-like aesthetics make it fit into a living or dining room, whereas it consists of a free-standing table plus ceiling element. It supports both a timed self-cooking mode as well as a social cooking situation and features a flexible cooking mat in the center of the table. A projector in the ceiling element projects onto the mat and creates an interactive cooking experience by giving feedback and offering subtle guidance throughout the cooking process (e.g. integrated scale, ingredient analysis). The flexible structure underneath the malleable mat allows movements and changes in shape – therefore it can shape up different cooking moldings in order to replace pots. ENYO is a space-efficient solution to suit future living trends and it encourages users to explore fresh and healthy cooking – and can be a platform to support a paradigm shift in eating habits (e.g. preparing insects).
The Push: ENYO is a forward-looking and space-saving solution to meet future living trends and visually appeals to consumers through its clean and furniture-like aesthetics, opposed to complex kitchen solutions. On top of creating a pleasant and convenient cooking experience, which supports healthy cooking and shifts in eating habits, ENYO subtly educates users and features a timed self-cooking mode for busy days. The table can also be transformed into a work table with an interactive center surface.
