Giulia Soldati is an Italian designer based in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), working between the fields of food and design.
Her research is inspired by food cultures and rituals, exploring social practices that are related to food preparations and consumption.

By recognizing the amazing power food has to bring people together, Giulia’s work is always redefining conviviality and the way we interact with what is placed on the table.

Using design as a tool to investigate the action of eating, Giulia Soldati crafts unique and immersive edible experiences that engage all the senses, and in particular the sense of touch. Exploring the proximity with the human body and food-related objects, she pushes and questions our culture and beliefs.

In an ongoing personal research Giulia Soldati is investigating what is behind what we eat everyday, spaces of food, food production, analizing gestures and the choreography of the body.

In 2016 Giulia Soldati founded Contatto Experience, a culinary culture and eating experience.
