Marije Vogelzang - Eating Designer

Dutch designer Marije Vogelzang invented a new design field for her
unique work: 'eating design' - sharing, transporting, preparing,
and growing food.

Marije's spin on a Christmas dinner is simply pulling up the sides
of a tablecloth and cutting slits for guests' arms and heads. The
dinner becomes much more intimate with a confined space and an
equalizing affair as the diners' clothing no longer set them apart.
