American Dreams - Waffle Computer

Client: Dominique Ansel Kitchen
Role: design / fabrication

This is a custom waffle dispensing computer I designed and fabricated for American Dreams, Dominique Ansel’s after hours dessert tasting experience. When a guest inserts a floppy disk into the computer a fresh hot waffle shoots out onto their plate.

The waffle computer represents a utopian dream the tech boom of the 90’s promised. The waffles are meant to evoke nostalgia for Eggo Waffles, while the Mac classic form recalls the innovation of the 90s.
