Kitchen Futures is a series of posts over the coming weeks, taking a glimpse into the future of home cooking through five trends spanning from short term to long term. Home Heston, the third post in the series, explores the curious world of molecular gastronomy where science meets theatre and where food becomes an artistic statement.
The world of molecular gastronomy will command a deeper-rooted knowledge of food properties and preparation, reaching the realms of chemical reactions and breaking of sensorial conventions.

Home lab – kitchen space is transformed into a theatre of experimentation. From surface to lighting and storage – the kitchen will reflect technical functionality but with a theatrical and playful twist.
- Precision geometric
- Stripped back elementary forms with precision details
- Structural patterns and graphics inspired by nature and machine
- Glass with crystal clarity, precision formed

The last thing that inspired me: Chinese teacups from a small café in Camden Town, London - the most amazing collection of colours and textures.
My dream project: Something multi-sensorial.
My obsession: Stationery - retro inspired, Asian influenced, graphically intriguing, sensorially indulgent and the 'unique'!
