Italian design platform recently teamed up with Barilla pasta to launch the 'Smart Pasta' contest, which challenges creatives to make inventive "3D shapes with a purpose."

The contest draws attention to the innovative pasta 3D printer, which was presented at Expo 2015 and CIBUS 2016. Although Barilla is soon set to celebrate its 140th year, this innovative company is not relying on the technologies that have brought it success in the past. The pasta maker is now looking to the future in collaboration with designers to create incredible 3D pasta shapes that would previously have been impossible to make by hand or machine.

The Smart Pasta contest is open to anyone; those who are looking for inspiration for the future of food can even pick up a few ideas on the official contest page.
