Design thinking for food culture



Mette is an innovation and design consultancy shaping the future of food by designing the products and spaces that bring it to life.


/  About

Food culture is about so much more than ingredients, recipes and products. 

It’s about creating scenes that transport us to amazing destinations, and evoke memories that uplift. It’s about bringing people together and enriching relationships. It’s about keeping us healthy in body and mind.

But most of all, it’s about reminding us of what’s important in life and how to sustain all life. And as the source of it all - fuelling our very existence - the food industry leads the way.

We have a special knack for creating engagement and emotional response through design, which gives our clients a powerful connection with their audience, and creates lasting relationships. Through storyful design that engages everyday audiences, we’ve helped pave the way to seven-figure investment, we’ve been voted most inspirational by 25,000 industry professionals, and we’ve been featured internationally from New York Times and Wired Magazine to Elle Decoration, Icon and Wallpaper*.

We strongly believe that supporting visionary brands to inspire their audiences, and future thinkers to change habits and perceptions - effectively setting the scene for purposeful ideas, innovation and interaction - is one way we can use our skills to contribute to positive economic, environmental and social impact, and so, work to improve everyday life and culture for all.

We develop concepts for our own product portfolio as well as for our clients, and as such have cultivated a strong network of makers and manufacturers, who span a variety of disciplines and materials..

As design consultants, we often liaise with manufacturers and contractors already involved with the project. But where a project requires it, we can call on our tried-and-trusted network .
