It took them almost ten months of construction, but on the 17th of May Doloris will open their doors to the  surrealistic ‘Meta Maze’ and rooftop bar. Doloris’ Meta Maze (as the maze is officially called) is the new creative, touristic hotspot of Tilburg and the Netherlands. A surrealistic maze of 400 m2, full of art and a touch of Alice in Wonderland, Narnia or Stranger Things. A walk- or climb-through art experience with over 40 rooms of surreal art, designed and built by the creators of Karmanoia. In the realm of Doloris you immerse yourself in a world beyond ours. As you follow oblique pathways, slip through hidden loopholes, walk through walls and encounter mysterious objects, time becomes fluid. Meta Maze is the only “immersive art experience” of this format in Europe and unique in the world in terms of form.

3DEN (pronounced “Eden”) is the second generation of the ‘third place’ (a space that’s neither home nor work). A non-membership, pay-as-you-use destination, 3DEN offers convenient and luxury amenities including sound-proof phone booths, nap pods, a spacious lounge, refreshments, private showers and more. With a nature-inspired design that fosters ease and focus, it’s the third place between home and work where you can get things done and refresh for wherever you’re headed next. The 3DEN app allows guests to reserve amenities in advance, as well as purchase any of the products they discover while in the space. 3DEN’s first location opened inside Hudson Yards on March 15, 2019, with a network of additional locations launching throughout New York City this year.

The place can be used to get some work done or for example if you have time to fill between meetings, or if you just arrived in town after a long flight and need somewhere to freshen up before going to your office or a meeting. lees verder

Winnow  launched on Friday 22 of march its new AI-enabled product, Winnow Vision, to revolutionize food management in commercial kitchens for the benefit of both businesses and future generations. Using a camera, a set of smart scales and the same type of machine learning technology found in autonomous vehicles, Winnow Vision ‘learns’ to recognise different foods being thrown in the bin and calculates the financial and environment cost of this discarded food to commercial kitchens. Businesses and chefs can then adjust their food purchasing decisions accordingly, reducing their spending and tackling a fundamental problem of food waste: overproduction.

Helping hospitality businesses to reduce the issue of food waste is in the DNA of Winnow. They are driven as a team to tackle food waste and have a clear vision of how to do it. They are building a future kitchen that is highly efficient, sustainable and ensures that food ends up where it is supposed to. lees verder

Atomo created the future of coffee; coffee without a bean. Startup Atomo, located in Seattle, uses naturally derived sustainable ingredients to create a smooth coffee with a perfect caffeine kick. By reverse-engineering the coffee bean, Atomo has created a naturally-derived and sustainable coffee with the same caffeine you’d expect and no harsh acid or bitterness. They analyzed the molecular compounds  in a cup of coffee and used the coffee’s blueprint to design the perfect cup of coffee without using any coffee beans. They produce a ground coffee, which looks and acts like a regular ground coffee and can be used in drip machines, pour overs, cups and French presses. lees verder
