We’ve been rather busy whilst the lab is in hibernation working on a number of very cool projects in the UK and in Europe, and we’re really excited to announce the first one that launched today; Taste of Tomorrow powered by Samsung explores how tech advancements are redefining the way we grow, cook and eat – both for today and tomorrow.
Hosted at Samsung KX in Coal Drops Yard is a hydroponic garden powered by SmartThings with a deep water culture garden with spices, fruits and herbs and a Microgreens farm producing a range of tasty nutrient rich greens. Green Lab co-designed the hydroponic garden working with a multi-disciplinary team of installation specialists and fabricators. The hydroponic garden is accessible to all visitors with a Samsung Tab S7+ device controlling aspects of lighting, temperature, fans and lighting spectrum.
Taste of Tomorrow explores our relationship with food and future trends in how we Grow, Cook and Eat; and we were really excited to work with musician, Stephen Manderson @professorgreen and Cook and Photographer, Sara Kiyo Popowa @shisodelicious in recording three unique film shorts which you can watch on the Samsung KX website.

With special thanks to Boochi for their delicious Kombucha, Small Giants for tasty insect snacks and Square Mile Farms for the first batch of Microgreens.
