elBulli was undoubtedly the most controversial and experimental 3-star Michelin restaurant in the world and Ferran Adrià – the chef who earned elBulli its worldwide fame – has been acclaimed as the best chef in the world.  Ferran and his team at elBulli were the first to employ an industrial designer as part of their creative team.

The results of his work with elBulli combining the rigors of gourmet cuisine and the innovations of industrial design have been exhibited in the Pompidou Centre in Paris, in the D.Day, le design d’aujourd’hui.
