For three days only – from Thursday 14 to Saturday 16 May – the Experimental Research Lab for Chapter Three/Futuro will be hosted in a secret tunnel location in King’s Cross by The Waldorf Project.
The project creates large-scale installations that aim to stimulate all five senses – through performance art, music and a dining experience – while exploring a theme. This event is a preliminary exploration into Chapter Three, with the full event to follow in early 2016. That’s not to say it’s going to be any less of an overwhelmingly intriguing experience for attendees, as nine leading names in gastronomy, visual art, design, theatre, electronic music, choreography and mixology come together for one event.
Chapter Three will also involve product design and liquid experts, as every part of the meal – food, drink, alcohol – will be presented in liquid form in Waterford Crystal vessels.
Chapter Three’s Futuro theme is inspired by the UFO-shaped house designed by Matti Suuronen in the late 1960s – a vision of a utopian future that has now all but disappeared. The creators of The Waldorf Project hope to take guests on a journey into the future through founder Sean Rogg’s exploration of consumption as a way to absorb art through all the senses.
