Latest news - Working on a cooking - App for Philips
Philips has reached out to me and asked to support their NutriU - App, for the Airfyer. It is fantastic to work with this appliance again, the product I know so well from the time when I worked closely with development and marketing to make this appliance locally relevant and looking at ways to improve the product from a culinary angle.
Like most of my projects, the work goes beyond 'just' developing and styling recipes, I closely work together with the team to improve the app and grow the community in Germany.

Next to this project, I continue to be available for other clients to inspire, advise, or co-create other wonderful food and cooking related products and services.

About Kookinspiratie
I am an industrial designer focused on creating consumer products. I specialised in the domain of cooking during university, when I worked in a restaurant and obtained my cooking degree. Since then, all my projects where about food and cooking.

The design engineering background thought me all about fabrication, materials, marketing, consumer research and art. Moreover, we are trained to be "integral design professionals" we switch well between marketing and research & development teams, understanding the big picture, the targets and the details well enough to work with specialists in order to create the best products, in my case the best food.

My goal is to connect innovation with the end user, by making sure that new products are actually meeting the needs of the end user. So far I have created unique restaurant and catering concepts, my recipe are shipped with with various cooking appliances all over the world; I have created the menu of a food box company and for a food delivery company in Berlin. In the supermarket you can buy cheese with my flavour combinations.
I am looking forward to collaborate with much more exciting brands and companies to create wonderful products that inspire people to eat well.
