Eat Love from Marije Vogelzang has been published and I would so much love to have it! I'd probably be doing something food related, as I did in the past, if I wasn't doing design - (professionally that is.) This book is just so beautiful too - Check out Studio Kluif who's reponsible for the design along with their other work...
Marije spoke at Design Indaba 2008 - so it's great when you get a feeling of: "Hey, I know her work".. :)
"Studio Kluif had the honour to design Marije Vogelzang’s first ‘Eat Love’ publication! After her graduation from the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 2000 Marije Vogelzang has been designing eating concepts. Her interest is in the verb ‘to eat’. She does not only deeply think about what is on a plate (if there is a plate at all), but she also thinks about everything that surrounds the act of eating. The atmosphere, the people involved, the stories behind the ingredients, the taste and texture, sound, smell and colour of food and the way it is prepared and served. She looks into the effect of food on our body and follows the journey food makes from seed all the way to becoming poop. Thinking about all this and working and experimenting in her studio and restaurant and by creating eating experiences for her clients she has developed her own unique way of looking at eating from a designer’s point of view. This book makes her vision and spectacular eating concepts available for the first time for a large group of people who are interested in food and the culture and experience of eating. The introduction is written by design critic Louise Schouwenberg and places Marije Vogelzang’s work within the context of Dutch design, international design and trends in food, eating culture and society."
