A new website for our current practice

Original painting by Joachim Beuckelaer, Edited by Antoine Jaunard

The website you are looking at is new and under development. We thought it was necessary to better reflect our current practice.

Domingo Club was born out of a growing desire to explore and share our discoveries about mycelium and food, and thus the fermentation of tempeh, and to create tools so that everyone can discover it at their own pace at home, and bring about a positive change in the food system at a citizen level. Because, as you know, our food system is broken. You know that, don’t you?

But we don’t want to stop there. We want to continue proposing innovative solutions to the problems facing our society. Whether it’s our own projects or yours. We’re open to collaboration, and what we do for ourselves, we can do for others.

This new website takes into account the triangular geometry of our practice: one project, one product, one documentation. Our projects are open-source and documented so that anyone can make them their own using digital fabrication techniques, but they are also manufactured and sold by us so that they can be used by everyone and so that we can be paid for our work.

We’re busy filling the website with content, paragraph by paragraph, image by image. If any of the documentation you were looking at is missing, it will come back quickly. More information about its making on this page.

Don’t hesitate to contact us to tell us what you think, to share your ideas or to discuss a possible collaboration. We’d love to chat with you.

Our studio is getting the tropical climate

the mycelium grows in the open air

Our studio got the tropical climate, the mycelium grows on its own. Unfortunately, this is bad news for our beloved earth.

But as the mycelium grows, so does hope, the hope of better managing the resources available to us, of processing foods that require little energy, and of ending or drastically reducing meat consumption and all the unnecessary suffering and CO2 that goes with it.

Another way of feeding, clothing and sheltering ourselves, in collaboration with the living, is possible. And we strongly believe that mycelium will take us there.

FoodCulture Days 2023

It was a blast to be part of the @foodculturedays art biennial 2023, surrounded by wonderful people, landscapes, art and food. The initiative proposes artistic and multidisciplinary projects that address the intrinsic link between food and ecology, with the aim of promoting social and environmental justice.

There, we organised two experiments based on the Domingo fermenter necklace. In two intimate workshops with 10 participants, we explored and understood the preparation of tempeh and then passed on our energy to the mycelial network on the festival site. Two days later, we gathered in the kitchen to celebrate the growth of the mycelium and taste the personal flavours of each tempeh.

It was an incredible opportunity for us to carry out this experiment over several days and receive live impressions from the participants. It’s definitely a fantastic and powerful way of connecting with them.

We were also delighted to be able to take part in the various activities offered as part of the programme and meet other initiatives and projects.

Tempeh Fermentation Workshop #3

Another workshop on Tempeh Fermentation in Akasha Hub Barcelona!

We took inspiration from Jessica Halim’s beautiful work and we experimented with different flavours using edible herbs and flowers from Akasha’s garden to flavour and colour our tempehs. It was a great way to awaken our visual, olfactory and gustatory senses at the same time!

Together we learned the basics of tempeh fermentation, discovered the power of mycelium, and experimented with new ways of making tempeh. And of course, we had a tasting session.

Tempeh Fermentation Workshop #2

This was our second workshop on Tempeh Fermentation that we hosted in our shared space Akasha Hub Barcelona. This time we have been experimenting with alternative techniques to shape our tempeh. We used cabbage leaves, banana leaves (as in Indonesia) and other vegetables, such as peppers, to see how the mycelium grows in the organic material and if it tastes different. In the end of the workshop, participants had the choice of taking their tempeh home with them or leaving it to incubate in our fermenters on site and coming to collect it from the following Wednesday.

Tempeh Fermentation Workshop #1

This is the start of a series of workshops on tempeh fermentation that we’re running on Sunday mornings in our shared space, Akasha Hub Barcelona.

The participants are invited to join and to observe, understand, enjoy and take part in this fermentation process that unites the world of fungi and plants in a convivial setting, including tasting!

Internet of Tricks

What can technology teach us? What is the scope of objects connected to the Internet? How can they be introduced to the new generations? What are the advantages and disadvantages of such objects?

These are the kinds of questions that the European project Internet of Tricks has asked us to consider. We are developing educational kits through which we will run workshops about the place of technology and connected objects in our society.

The first educational object we are designing is a connected tool that invites participants to close their eyes and meditate. This object, equipped with a camera, analyses the participants to detect their level of meditation and communicates from one object to another, inviting others to join a collective meditation. The object is open-source and designed to be built and deconstructed, learned and re-appropriated.

The second prototype we are working on is a connected plant care station. This device measures the environmental data of a plant, waters it according to its needs and displays the collected data on an online dashboard. The project is free and open-source and is intended to be comprehensive and understandable in order to teach the possibilities of prototyping, electronics and IOT.

We are happy to be able to work on this project which links our different interests: nature, technology and education.

Tempeh course

Few months ago we met Amita in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He taught us everything he knew about tempeh and its fermentation. With him, we re-learned how to make tempeh, starting from the very basics and we made the biggest tempeh we had ever seen. We visited several tempeh workshops, from a family business to a women’s collective to a single man, in order to open our eyes to the practice, to observe how each one finds its way in this magnificent process that is the fermentation of tempeh. Thank you Amita for these discoveries and for your teaching.

Today we feel we know a thousand times more than before our journey. And every day we put this knowledge into practice in order to transfer it from the head to the hands.

kick-start 2023

With the will to make this 2023 a year open to the public, we moved our studio (and the club!) to a new space in Barcelona. We are very enthusiastic to join Akasha Hub Barcelona, a community space full of ideas and beautiful projects, with a large space and kitchen for events, a workshop for prototyping and a garden for growing food. We left our beloved Sudio with our two trolleys full of prototypes, experiments and good memories. Happy new year, come and visit us!
