portfolio eat’inspiration just in time.

the eat’inspiration just in time is the first of a trilogy that explores the concept of time .

in this eat’inspiration our focus is mainly on the fact that most people experience a permanent lack of time, and that they find it hard to live in the present, and the following opinion is becoming more and more mainstream: ‘if we do not change our consumer behaviour, our planet will not last very long.’

we tried to capture the zeitgeist in 5 dishes:

  • rhythm: food structures your daily rhythm , but also your life . you have breakfast, lunch and dinner, you’ll experience the seasons and the milestones with food in your life .
  • t.time : we have to twitter, facebook,, we have to expose ourselves all the time, and showcase how successful we are. so for many people it is difficult to live in the present. t.time is a dish based on the japanese concept ichi-go ichi-e (one life, one meeting). in the context of a tea ceremony it is a call for reflection to experience a routine act as a unique moment. this dish was by the way a try out and a sneak peek of our first tea concept where is my t. that we launched on oct 20, 2013 @ dutch design week 2013.
  • too late ?: the pessimists among us believe it is 5 to 12 . if we do not change our consumer behaviour, it could be too late for mother earth.
  • clockwise : a contemporary view on the world and a new way of eating. various marinated vegetables + dark chocolate. discover your own favorites clockwise or the other way around and realize where your clock or the clock stands.
  • (under) pressure : sorry , but we are just like you permanently struggling with pressure and always have the feeling we are TOO busy. so we constructed (or is it deconstructed ?) a rather popular comfort dish, in this case an apple pie, and re-created it using the many possible interpretations of pressure.
