“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.

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

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 instructor. Her research resulted in the book The Sausage of the Future, released by Lars Müller Publishers in 2017.
