“Food is fascinating because it is an ever evolving substance where development will never stop.”

Carolien Niebling (born 1984 in Maastricht,The Netherlands) lives and works in Zurich (Switzerland). She is a designer and researcher who specializes in food-related projects. Her work creates a bridge between science and food, using design as the medium to do so:

“Invented over 5’000 years ago and developed ever since, the sausage is a true design object.”

Carolien graduated as a Master in Product Design from ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne) in 2014. She continued at ECAL working as an assistant teacher. During this time she completed her research on The Sausage of the Future, which resulted in a book published by Lars Müller Publishers in 2017.
