Bompas & Parr
Bompas & Parr leads in flavour based experience design, culinary research, architectural installations and contemporary food design. Founded by Sam Bompas and Harry Parr in 2007 the early work of the studio used jelly as a vehicle to research the crossmodal correspondences of the senses and the relationship between food and architecture. The studio first came to prominence through its expertise in jelly making, but has since gone on to create immersive flavour based experiences ranging from an inhabitable cloud of gin and tonic, a chocolate climbing wall and a Taste Experience for the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, officially the best place to taste Guinness in the world.
The studio works with some of the world’s biggest companies (Diageo, Cargill, Mercedes-Benz) and the world’s foremost cultural institutions (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture, Moscow).
Bompas and Parr have written three cook books, published in London and New York, and recently published a fourth Tutti Frutti with Bompas & Parr and Friends through Bompas & Parr Editions the studio's publishing house dedicated to printing niche food publications, both contemporary and historic.
