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.”
