My Designs Inside Your Body

October 7, 2010

Designers who work with food are often called “food designers.” According to Marije Vogelzang, food is already perfectly designed by nature. She designs from the verb “to eat.” She is inspired by the origin of food, its preparation, etiquette, history and culture. Rather than calling herself  a “food designer” she sees herself as an “eating-designer.” Her wide-ranging practice includes the design of restaurant, medical and educational projects, as well as creating installations and new food rituals. Vogelzang discusses the exploration and potential of a new approach to the act of eating. Or is it a new approach to design?
