Fusion of design and catering industries

Eight designers and eight chefs collaborated as a pair to attain unique products that can be used in restaurants. The designers were inspired by the chefs and vice versa.

Point of departure for the project was the added value that creative industries can bring to other sectors of industry - in this case, to top-class restaurants. Design solutions were explored for situations that both the staff and the restaurants have to cope with in their daily work.

Maarten Baptist / Avant Garde Stand

Patron Cuisinier Johan van Groeninge loves to be inspired by beautiful or unusual services. This is why Maarten Baptist designed a silver clamp especially for restaurant Avant Garde with a holder fashioned out of laboratory glass and which literarily adds taste to the food: one drop of an extra ingredient, to go with every bite of food.
