Sylvie completed the Design Academy cum laude in 2008, and has ever since worked as a freelance designer in a variety of fields from product design to food concepts. Additionally, she built up the company Knol, where she works on a wide range of projects, experimenting with food, technology and space.
Fascinated by the rituals and traditions around objects, she is aiming for designs that have potential for everyday use, with an unexpected way of detailing. When designing, she is not only thinking about the product itself but also the experience and the rituals that grow around them.
Sylvie lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

TNO's kitchen is a showroom for new technological inventions concerning the food sector, developed by the company TNO.
A landscape of glass cubes forms the storytelling interior of TNO's new ‘foodlab’, where the latest food printing technologies are on display. Inside the cubes, a mixture of 3D-printed products and fresh food items is displayed, showing where the food industry may take us in the future.
We used old-fashioned techniques in contrast to the high tech machines, making the interaction tangible and demonstrating the huge leap in time. Our goal was to motivate the visitors to take a stroll and explore the inventions by themselves.
In collaboration with Knol.
