"Food is fascinating because it is an ever-evolving substance where development will never stop."
Carolien Niebling (b. 1984, Maastricht, the Netherlands) lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. She is a designer and researcher who specializes in food-related projects. Carolien's work uses design to unite the fields of science and food. She received a master's degree in product design from École Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne (ECAL) in 2014 and was asked to stay on as an assistant teacher. Her research resulted in the book The Sausage of the Future, edited by ECAL and published by Lars Müller Publishers in 2017.
"Invented over 5'000 years ago and developed ever since, the sausage is a true design object."
Carolien has won the Design Parade Hyères Grand Prix at Villa Noailles (2017), the Hublot Design Prize (2017) and the Design Prize Switzerland (2019).
