Responsive Projection Mapping Heightens Luxury Dining Experience
The Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza is launching Sublimotion, an "avant-garde" restaurant concept that only seats 12 guests per night.
Sublimotion is an emotional ‘theatre of the senses’ and world’s most expensive restaurant – costing $2000 per person for an evening of gastronomy and technology.
The twelve person dining experience comes from the mind of Michelin-starred chef Paco Roncero and will open at the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza this May. While there is no information about the menu, in a preview video (see below), you see projection mapping transforming the dining space into an immersive wonderland.
Behind the scenes, in a production room is an operator orchestrating the live event, like a wizard behind the curtains. They control the projection mapping, which is interactive and seems to respond to diners’ movements.
A spokesperson told The Daily Mail:
The dishes will cause a stir among the most neglected senses; from moments of humour, pleasure, fear, reflection and nostalgia, diners will be wandering through a world of sensations from the North Pole where they will enjoy a cold snack that they carve on their own iceberg or to the baroque Versailles where the elegance of a rose is sure to melt in their palate.
