Carolien Niebling was born 1984 in Maastricht, The Netherlands but currently lives and works in Zurich. 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. She says "Food is fascinating because it is an ever evolving substance where development will never stop. The sausage was invented over 5000 years ago and has been developed ever since, to me this is a true design object." Carolien graduated ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne) Master in Product Design in 2014. She won the Grand Prix, Design Parade at Villa Noailles, Hyères, 2017 and the Hublot Design Prize, 2017.
