Brief

Slow Chen is a Taiwan based Food Designer who graduated from SPD, Milan with a Master degree in Food Design in 2016. In her earlier career, she worked as an architect / interior designer and food stylist in Taiwan, coordinating multiple projects with professionals from different industries for clients such as Jamie’s Italian (HK), Starbucks, Le Creuset, among many others.

After grad school, Slow Chen worked at Martí Guixé’s studio in Barcelona for internship until early 2017, her most recent achievement involves working at exhibitions of food design in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, as well copywriting for magazines. Further more, she recently launched a new brand of preserving food “LOUU”, which she uses to get her work known all throughout the beautiful island of Taiwan and beyond.

陳小曼大學畢業於實踐建築設計系,於建築事務所工作期間與夥伴成立食物攝影工作室,擔任食物造型與企劃,並獨立出版食物影像刊物 Nutty Project;後於2015年前往義大利米蘭理工學院攻讀食物設計碩士學位,畢業後至巴塞隆納食物設計師 Martí Guixé 工作室實習。

2017年返台後創立公司,專案項目主要為展覽、活動策劃;以食物為載體,與不同領域的專業者合作,如廚師、調酒師、空間設計、互動設計、平面設計等,共同打造使用者體驗、發展概念與探討食物議題。曾參與基隆市政府地方創生工作營、台中市政府川游不息綠川展、誠品三十週年展、國立美術館感官瑜珈等。

2020年底,團隊將觸角延伸至食物產設領域,創立保存食品牌「LOUU」,在創作與商業間尋求最大公約數,亦試圖透過趨勢與市場機制探索叩問,為我們想要的未來提供多一點選擇。

我們相信,最壞的時代裡有最多的可能性。
