A design exhibit in Tokyo brings personalized health in a quirky retail setting.

Lise Lefebvre and Maxime Morel created ‘Laboratory Food Analysis’ for a competition hosted by Tokyo Designers Week 2011. The Amsterdam-based designers held their exhibition in a shipping container which was converted into a lab-like environment. Visitors were greeted by a lab assistant before being taken through a series of mock-health examinations.

After the consultation, visitors were given a personalized ‘nutricard’ depending on their health conditions and PH levels in their saliva. These cards are edible and are soaked in various plant extracts.

Lefebvre explains:

For example, someone with a slightly alkaline PH in their saliva will receive a personal nutricard with a high percentage of carotene to improve eyesight and printed with citrus extract, to rebalance their PH.
