Long before lift-off, the British astronaut challenged Michelin starred chef, Heston Blumenthal, to create dishes to eat during his six-month mission on-board the ISS, which would remind him of home.
Designed a multi-sensory and nostalgic dining experience for the British Astronaut, Tim Peake, for his Mission Principia on board the ISS. It involved package design for the food curated by Michelin starred chef, Heston Blumenthal and elements to support the experience design.
Enjoys outdoors and camping
Is a family man and has two sons
The Michelin starred chef prepared space food based on Tim's favourite dishes and those which are the most memorable for the British astronaut for his visit to the International Space Station on Mission Principia.
A fine-dine mat designed to hold the food tin in the plate hole and an iPad in the slit on top. The mat would enable Tim to audio-visually interact with his family and dine together.
A visually engaging mat designed with illustrations from a camp site and family photographs. This mat enables Tim to reminisce the natural outdoors on Earth and enjoy a nostalgic meal.
An iPod pocket designed at the bottom of the food tin sleeve attached with noise reducing ear phones. This would enable Tim to enjoy ambient sounds from nature or some of his favourite music while relishing the food.
Natural scents infused bubble wrap attached to the sleeve of the food tin, emanating smells when burst. The smell is the strongest link to memory, so it could induce nostalgia while eating. This idea is subject to ISS regulations.
Special sleeves designed for the food tins based on the recipes prepared by Heston. Thereby generating an emotion of familiarity and inducing haptic sensations while enjoying the meals.

A candle light gourmet dinner date visualisation for Tim, with his wife, from the International Space Station.
It includes a British bow tie ensemble created using a printed t-shirt or a fabric stick-on along with augmented reality candles floating in the background. The idea hopes to engage them in a delightful and unique experience.
