Chloé Rutzerveld is a critical food designer who explores and challenges food production and consumption. She is fascinated by nature, the human body and the strange relationship people have with food. After she graduated Cum Laude from the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2014, she started her own studio as Food and Concept Designer. 

Her work is interdisciplinary and a direct response to the things she questions or is fascinated about. By combining aspects of design, science and technology she thinks up new ways to make our food more efficient, healthy and sustainable. 

She communicates her ideas through speculative design probes, interactive installations, workshops and experimental dinners. By using food as medium, she makes new technologies and food related issues tangible for a wide variety of people, resulting in more understanding and in-depth discussions. 

Next to self-initiated work, Chloé does commissioned projects and consultancy work. She also lectures about her work and the future of food.


Chloé is a stunningly unique thinker. She has the uncanny ability to look at the world around her and extract surprising insights that deeply challenge the status quo. She uses her storytelling abilities to weave a compelling narrative around possible food futures. She then uses her artistry to bring these potential futures to life in exhibitions, workshops and installations that provoke audiences to see the world through a completely new vantage point.
