New video series
In the six-part series ‘Hungry for Design’ top chefs are linked to local designers, in which the chefs are challenged to develop a dish based on the work of the designer. Among the chefs are well-known names such as Dick Middelweerd, Naresh Ramdjas, and Cas Pikaar. The participating designers are all young, talented designers with different backgrounds: from a social designer to an architect and from a sound designer to a material researcher. Bringing the different disciplines together results in special collaborations, common ground when it comes to the creative process, and, of course, great food.

Episode 6: Naresh Ramdjas & Sanne Schuurman
Naresh Ramdjas is a chef, food stylist, finalist of MasterChef Holland, and designer. During his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven, he noticed that edible materials are much easier to design with than let’s say wood or metal. Nowadays he is a curator and chef of Creative Food Studio and pop-up initiative Nareshtaurant.
Sanne Schuurman is a designer, art director, and one of the co-founders of Envisions. Envisions is a collective, consisting of 23 designers, with a shared fascination for material research. The goal of the collective is to offer the industry new perspectives on materials, techniques, and production facilities.
