VANTOT x Jesse Goyvaerts

What happens when the worlds of design and gastronomy come together? In this episode of Hungry for Design: designer duo Esther Jongsma and Sam van Gurp of Studio VANTOT & chef Jesse Goyvaerts. 

About VANTOT & Jesse

Street lighting that searches for the sun itself, and many other intriguing light installations: that is Studio VANTOT by Esther Jongsma and Sam van Gurp. They met at the Design Academy Eindhoven. After their graduation, they joined forces and combined their love for light and movement. Nowadays, they shine their light far beyond our borders, for clients at home and abroad.

On the collaboration

Light is an essential pacesetter in both the studio of VANTOT and the restaurants of Jesse Goyvaerts and his brothers. Not surprisingly, a light bulb went off when they sat at the drawing table—the result: a luminous plate that puts the carefully selected ingredients in the spotlight.
