Gelatoscopio® is a Mexican ice cream shop inspired by the search for the most fun and authentic way to connect with our emotions, in order to discover a fantastic reality through flavors, textures and aromas that transport us to memorable moments. Created by a team of dessert and design lovers, it seeks to become a referent through a delicious, unique and different experience for everyone.
Gelatoscopio® is a utopian scenario, inspired by the fantastic machines that were and still are the imaginary of a romantic future. The materiality responds to objects and ships of an industrial character where metallic materials and bright finishes are used. The object is a composition constructed through lenses that dialogue with the context: they observe, deform and distort it, definitively altering the relation of the senses with the product. The “lenses” are composed of various mechanisms: magnifying glasses, kaleidoscopes, mirrors and lighting.
