frame of reference showcased by the sound of black


the sound of black

the sound of black is the story of the 7 notions that together are our frame of reference. the frame of reference of studio de culinaire werkplaats is illustrated by the sound & our signature ‘black ingredients’.

the projects and works of studio de culinaire werkplaats are about food and the act of eating from the perspective of the future. very often we make crossovers to other disciplines or domains such as fashion, architecture or abstract topics like emotions or time.

we have translated our ideas with 7 words to a kind of framework of reference, and these 7 words guide our thinking & amp; and all our other actions and reactions. these words not only reflecting in our projects, products and services, but these words also give direction to the interior, our dealings with our team, clients & amp; our contacts with guests, all of our communications in the broadest sense of the word.

these words also showcase what we expect our partners, suppliers, employees, guests, press, monitoring institutes, etc. in their interactions with us. we have translated our ideas and ambitions to 7 words to avoid so that we are able to integrate our ideas and ambitions without too many internal rules in all our thinking and actions.

in 2008 we started with the following seven words: unconventional, positive, personal, involved, active, open, and rhythm. the last word “rhythm” we replaced in 2013 by ‘humor’, as our frame of reference is a dynamic model.

the short video “the sound of black’ about the frame of reference of de culinaire werkplaats is based on the first selection of seven words and our signature ‘black’. since 2008 we are known all over the world as the people of ‘t black food, because in the first six months of our existence we only designed black dishes and products. after 6 month we left our black period behind us and we became more colourful in our projects.
