Principal, Proef and Studio Marije Vogelzang in Amsterdam
Marije Vogelzang invented her job as an eating designer after graduating the Design Academy in 2000. In 2004, she founded Proef – a place to eat in Rotterdam and a design studio/restaurant in Amsterdam. The basis for her work is the verb ‘to eat’. Respecting the nature of food and creating experiences that touch the subject of food starting from seed and going to shit, Vogelzang bridges the culinary world with the design world. Besides her design work for hospitals, museums and restaurants, she consults and lectures around the world. She recently published the book EAT LOVE about her work and philosophy.
