About Rocco Verdult & Casimir Evens

Rocco Verdult
Designing the convergence of people. That may sound a bit vague, but Rocco Verdult of the similarly named studio makes it very concrete. From the decoration of a corporate event, to a social project that connects residents: social designer Rocco gives it a creative and personal twist. 

Casimir Evens
Casimir Evens rose to great heights in Eindhoven. Literally and figuratively. Since 2017, he has been wielding the scepter at restaurant and sky bar VANE – on the highest floor of the Groene Toren. Before this, the Eindhoven-based Casimir cooked at Zilte and Pastorale, two-star restaurants in Belgium.

On the collaboration

Finding a common denominator doesn't have to be complicated: Casimir and Rocco have something in common with Woensel-West. This colorful district has undergone quite a transformation in recent years, which isn't always easy to spot with your feet on the ground. The dish offers a different perspective, a top view of something that strongly resembles a city district.
