Student Designer 4D Prints Fruits That are as Nutritious and Healthy as Real

Neo Fruits is a collection of artificially designed fruits that envisions to fulfill the food scarcity in the future. Designer Meydan Levy of Bezalel Academy of Art and Design won the 2019 Core 77 Design Award in the Speculative Design category for the conceptual project “Neo Fruit”.

These man-made fruits have a wide range of nutrients that are tailored to our daily needs. The form and texture of these fruits were designed to fulfill man’s sensory involvement while remaining healthy.

Levy designed Neo Fruit with 4D printers using cellulose, which is an organic material and can simply be physically manipulated. A flat structure of a peel and filling made of cellulose was printed, which is enriched with phytochemicals.

Micro-tubes were implemented in the structure of these fruits. Once the printing was done, the insides of the fruits were injected with mineral and vitamin-enriched liquids through micro-tubes. This liquid injection creates a dynamic life-like object with a shelf life and a healthy supplement of food.

The unique invention utilizes the experience of consuming through interactive packaging that maintains the main themes of the fruit itself and allows the users to enjoy the benefits of nutrition supplements. The color provided to the nutritional complements inside the Neo Fruits is designed to maintain the natural essence of the fruit.

The increasing world population, rising demand for food and the consequences of modern agricultural and industrial processes inspired Levy to create this collection of artificially designed fruits.
