Zoë Jacobs - How do we sit to eat?

It is no surprise anymore that our food effects our bodies growth. What does our current food schedule look like and what does it mean for the size of our body?

ED shares our plans

Eindhovens Dagblad gives director Ward Rennen the stage to tell out plans for Museum door de Stad: “I hope this project shows a better image of how Eindhoven came to be. There has been a lot of talking about the focus point technic, design and knowledge, but only a small hand of people knows where it comes from. That’s what we want to make clear with Museum door de Stad.”

How do you eat your food?

Zoë Jacobs would love to know how you eat! Make a lifelong imprint of yourself or draw your own body outline. Zoë has let herself become inspired by the diversity of chairs from the Eindhoven Museum collection. Photo’s: Max Kneefel
