Luncheon for Danish Design Center at SPACE10

In connection with a book release event hosted by Space 10 and with guests from the Danish Design Center, I was hired to make a lunch. John Thackara had written a new book, How To Thrive In The Next Economy, which is about a more sustainable future a.o. My idea was therefore to create a lunch focused on the environment and I chose two big factors on the unsustainable list of ways we produce and consume today: Food waste and overproduction of meat.  

Therefore, in this project I worked primarily with vegetables with the exception of a little bit of milk and butter in the soup. My inspiration came from my own experiences with too much food left in the fridge without being used, and what I have been able to grow in my window sill and balcony.

It was also important for me to have an element of fun and interaction, which I implemented by letting the guests design their own plates, picking their own herbs and serving the soup themselves from watering cans.

Tommorow's Meatball

I was hired by a team from Space10 ( www.space10.io ) as food designer. Space 10 is IKEA’S international innovation lab, placed in the meatpacking district in Copenhagen. My assignment was to design a strong visual presentation of eight possible future food trends. As most people know, IKEA serve their Swedish meatballs in the IKEA stores around the world. So we chose to introduce the international meatball in 8 new and very different ways.



The project went viral, so tjek it out online https://www.space10.io/journal/tomorrow-s-meatball-what-we-all-could-be-eating-20-years-from-now )

Girls dinner (vegetarian)

More and more people become aware of ecology and environment. Overproduction of meat to the western world is a growing problem and luckily there is a growing interest and attention on this problem. More people are trying to live more vegetarian, myself included. I made this dinner for a large group of women to inspire and show how much you can get out of food not involving meat! The problem is in fact quite often that people do not feel they are full or that there are enough choices for delicious vegetarian food! The dinner took place in late November, not the most fruitful season, and I love to cook with native seasonal ingredients so that was the factor that inspired me.

The dinner was a success, all were full, happy and inspired.
