Steinbeisser is a creative studio founded in 2009 by Jouw Wijnsma and Martin Kullik. In 2012 Steinbeisser launched the Experimental Gastronomy initiative based in the Netherlands and active around the world.

Experimental Gastronomy brings together renowned chefs and artists for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience. Food and drinks are entirely plant-based (vegan), seasonal and sourced from local organic and biodynamic (Demeter) farmers. Artists create cutlery and dishware that celebrates experimentation in the search for new ways to enjoy food. The dinners showcase contemporary cuisine at the highest level, uniting craft, design, gastronomy and nature.

Launched in 2016, Steinbeisser’s online store Jouw… presents a collection of extraordinary tableware pieces created by artists for the Experimental Gastronomy. Driven by a search for new ways to enjoy food, these pieces don’t follow the normal rules of usability. Instead, they challenge you to reconsider preconceptions about the relationship between tableware and the user. They can be loved for their thought-provoking function but also for their beauty.

2022 marked the beginning of our biodiversity initiative. Part of the proceeds from all our projects goes into the restoration of natural habitats with a special focus on endangered native plant species. Find insights and updates on the progress in our biodiversity journal.
