think orange – the essence of NL

adcn yearbook cover by de culinaire werkplaats

on invitation by adcn (art directors club nederland) we created one of the 12 book covers of the adcn yearbook 2014.

the vernissage, the book launch and expo took place on january 28th, 2015 @ pakhuis de zwijger, where the 12 cover contributors received a copy of the year book with their own cover.

the concept of the year book. by marcel kampman (happykamping). the content of the book is about inspirational ideas of the past, so the cover should cover the future. so he approached 12 creatives to create a book cover using their own technique and/or materials.

our personal assignment. make a book cover with the letter N in your techniques and materials. the letter N represents ‘the netherlands’.

title. think orange – the essence of NL

used materials. carrot in 12 different techniques, agar agar, pro espuma, lecite and orange cardboard.

idea. we like to explore and address all kinds of societal issues, themes, matters by creating playful edible communication triggers. every technique results in another texture, every texture reveals another taste and/or aspect of a carrot. the various textures together represent the essence of carrot, showcase the variety, the talents, the dna of the netherlands and the dutch way of thinking and creating.

the other contributors. byborre, buurmen, happykamping, huisveendam, moore, oak & morrow, rjw elsinga, stang, merijn tinga, waag society and maria walnut.

dutch masters & master pieces

no-fingerprints by de culinaire werkplaats

in search of excellence is the 2nd eat’inspiration of our project ‘dutch icons revisited‘. on the image: no fingerprints.

no fingerprints is a tribute to a the dutch master burglar Aage Meinesz (aage m.), well known in the 70ties for his well prepared bank robberies using a thermal lance. at the end he was caught, but managed to escape. and… to this day the world is figuring out how he managed to do this.

the eat’inspiration ‘in search of excellence’ is the 2nd eat’inspiration of our project ‘dutch icons revisited‘.

the inspirational theme ‘dutch masters’ was triggered by our project during museums at night amsterdam at the van gogh museum.
the notion ‘master’ refers for us to all kinds of talents, skills and types of excellence. so for this eat’inspiration we selected 5 different expertises.
so for this eat’inspiration we selected 5 different dutch master talents. the eat’inspiration starts with an eat’cocktail inspired by a dutch master burglar, aage m. the other masters we addressed: rembrandt van rijn (painter), rem koolhaas (architecture), iris van herpen (fashion design), marcel wanders (product design).
