Workshop Review: Food, Design & Influence

On Thursday 14th Jan 2021, we gathered a distinguished group of culinary and design leaders for a discussion on the intersection of culinary and design culture and the mediums through which modern consumers engage these ideas. 

Food and culinary arts have transformed our homes and social gatherings, as well as being a natural catalyst for spatial design and materiality. Culinary tastemakers who have galvanized followings and activated compelling spaces will lead the discussion on the important cultural intersection of food and design.
