Hello there!

My name is Mathilde Nakken, a recent graduate from the Design Academy Eindhoven, from the department Food non Food. Here I discovered my drive to create art en design projects focussing on science and technology, landscapes and food. With enthusiasm and a bit of humor, I develop new future scenario’s on how can we eat, sleep and live in a more sustainable manner. I dare to think big and work small. To me, collaboration with experts outside the design field is essential; from scientist to farmers. However, my design team not only consists out of human colleagues, for example in the past I collaborated with yeasts, cows and robots. I design to share an optimistic view on the challenges ahead of us, whether that is done via an animation, presentation or exhibition design.
