Lei Garden

The World’s First Fully Autonomous Restaurant.

Studio X were appointed to go through s highly experimental design process to see if it would be possible to fully automate a restaurant.

We carried out an extensive R&D ​and prototyping ​​exercise with ​our remit extending to designing every customer touch point in the restaurant from arrival, table allocation, and payment but, crucially also including delivery of food orders and removal of dirty plates to individual place-settings and, crucially, not by using sushi conveyor technology.

This was one of the most challenging projects we have ever worked on, and resulted in a proof of concept scheme that could be used by our client to determine a precise feasibility, CAPEX plan, and roll-out strategy.

Studio X was appointed by one of the world’s most successful, Michelin starred, restaurant groups to create a new restaurant concept that utilises technology ​that has ​never​ been​​ ​seen ​before​ in a restaurant environment. This will allow customers to just walk-in, be allocated a great seat, order their food, remove dirty plates, and pay, all without staff involvement.

Our main objective is to improve the performance of our clients businesses by creating exciting, emotive spaces that have high utility and this project epitomises this approach.

What the client says

“ As a high-end Chinese restaurant operator, we commissioned Studio X to create a “simple elegant” casual dining concept that offers an authentic Asian dining experience with full automation. It was a tall order with great execution challenges.

Studio X worked diligently with our management and operation teams, and presented a comprehensive solution within schedule. In addition to the aesthetic, we were impressed by their creativity and global network. Their business case analysis was unexpected and serves as an important reference for our executive decision.

I highly recommend Studio X to any business that needs a holistic solution provider ”
