Culinary Craft and Design

Food and design have a long-standing connection through the act of crafting and creating,  a relationship and explored at a recent conference in London ‘Food Design 2012‘.  The lines between chef and designer continue to be blurred through projects such as Emile Baltz’s CMYK cocktails.  New York-based firm Studio Appetit don’t design products, but rather food experiences and interactions. Their recent project Aphrodisiac transforms eating from an individual experience to one that is shared through their elongated kitchenware. Along the same vein, an exhibition called “Eating By Design” runs in the Netherlands through September, curated by Marjie Vogelzang and featuring work by Honey and Bunny.
