Caesarstone presented a sensory odyssey by Dutch eating designer Marije Vogelzang, continuing the annual feature that has seen the premium quartz surfacing manufacturer collaborate with such eminent designers as Snarkitecture, Jaime Hayón, Raw Edges, Philippe Malouin and Tom Dixon.
In Vogelzang’s vision, the kitchen’s discrete functions are broken down to reveal the fundamental ways the preparation and sharing of food drives human connection. Her honeycomb-like installation will focus on the symbolism of the actions we carry out in the kitchen, eliminating extraneous noise, disruption and changing perspective on the simple act of eating. The installation will send visitors along the symbolic journey of a seed returning to the earth inside a forest of ribbons heightening the sensory experience.
Food designers design food, but Marije Vogelzang designs the act of eating, taking inspiration from food's origins, its preparation, and the politics, history and culture of eating. Marije graduated from Eindhoven Design Academy in 2000 where she started working with food in 1999. She began her career as an "eating designer" with two experimental restaurants in Rotterdam and Amsterdam, conceived as design studios with with restaurants inside; every detail, from the cutlery to the teabags, is custom made.
Broadening her role from restauranteur to what Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant describes as the "grand dame" of eating design, Marije now takes on all types of food-related projects - new eateries, product design, initiatives for hospitals, exhibition design and curation, and even social projects and education.
Marije founded the Dutch Institute of Food & Design in 2016. She also heads a new food design department at the Design Academy Eindhoven, called "Food non Food."
