0 Comments on this event

On March 1st, The Pratt Institute and Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator organize a lecture with food designer Katja Gruijters and Judith van den Boom, Department Head at Product Design at ArtEZ University of the Arts, Arnhem, in the Netherlands. This lecture is generously being sponsored by Pratt Institute and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. Katja’s lecture will focus on the idea of obesity across industries, looking at how we as consumers have become “overweight” from the over-consumption of fashion, food and information.

About Food Design

Food Design explores the consumption, industry and sustainable development of our daily food. Most food books fixate on the presentation of food on the plate—this book, however, offers something different: a uniquely integrated approach that makes you see and feel what you eat, context and all. Food Design investigates everything about food, including production, distribution, enjoyment, and digestion.

About Judith van den Boom

Judith van den Boom’s methods on research, design and learning are inspired by her approach as a practical idealist. She is an avid lecturer and has worked with institutes in Germany, the US, the UK, China and Canada. She received her masters at the Royal College of Art in London (UK) and since working as a designer, lecturer and head of the Product Design department at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, initiating forward thinking vision and programs to deliver a new generation that builds new practices. Judith’s work stems from a pro-active mentality to work together on the expanding consciousness and roles of designers in today’s rapidly transforming environmental, technological, social, and cultural landscapes.
