From next September on, students at Design Academy Eindhoven will be able tograduate in a completely new specialisation: “Food Non Food”. Renowned “eating designer” Marije Vogelzang (who graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2000) will be the Head of this new department, working together with Earlwyn Covington (who previously launched “Thinking Food Design” with Marc Brétillot and Jean-Charles Amey), Arne Hendriks, Mara Skujeniece and Robert Adolfsson.
Marije Vogelzang declared: “In my field of action, I am detecting a growing demand for creative minds that can focus on these various issues within the subject of food. There is great scope for innovation, for clarification, for exposing and questioning traditions and for a more poetic or artistic approach to food. Graduates from the Food Non Food department can go on to work in the food industry, in hotel and restaurant service, event design, in retail, the agricultural sector or in transport as brand and experience designers. The possibilities are endless.”
