Bompas & Parr

Bompas & Parr design spectacular food experiences with a distinctly architectural edge. Exploring how the taste of food is ‘altered through synaesthesia, performance and setting’ Bompas & Parr also design and manufacturer bespoke jelly moulds and kitchenalia. Truly marvellous!

Sam Bompas & Harry Parr have worked with architects including Lord Foster and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners designing jellies for a 2000 person Jelly Banquet at UCL, provided expertise for Heston Blumenthals recent series Feast and worked with the ICA to transform Peter Greenaways The Cook The Thief His Wife and Her Lover for a scratch n sniff event introduced by the director. Quite the career for making jelly, wouldn’t you say?

The lovely people at took some time out to meet one half of Bompas and Parr. Here, Sam Bompas explains their latest venture, a pop-up gum factory open to the public, and talks about making magic with food – including a gin cloud. Yum.
