ORION: a Zero-G gastronomic experience

Designed for the near future, ORION aims to provide a multisensory gastronomic experience for space tourism. This design seeks to reimagine how space tourists would experience drinking in microgravity and viewing Earth from orbit. It consists of a centrepiece drink dispenser and vessel for drinking.

This project envisions a future where space tourism becomes a method to reduce alienation by inspiring and reconnecting people with Earth instead of becoming a way for people to escape from its problems. Earth viewing had been selected as the focus of this project, as astronauts had described it as a life-changing experience.
