This year, Gestalten has published two books about cutting-edge food culture, and we are proud to be featured in both! The books prior to these, Create and Delicate, has always been a great inspiration to us and books that we always dreamed to be in. What an honour!
A Delicious Life:
A Delicious Life showcases today’s new food movement and the people behind it. The book takes us into the workplaces and minds of groundbreaking foodists who are fine-tuning cooking, baking, and brewing methods; rediscovering long forgotten ingredients; developing cutting-edge new recipes; and creating exceptional experiences around food.
A Delicious Life reveals the personalities and passions fueling food’s current evolution. Featuring a broad spectrum of food entrepreneurs and their striking locations for cooking, eating and shopping, as well as a selection of their kitchen utensils, products, and surprising events, the book provides readers with sources and inspiration to become a part of this movement themselves.

Taken by Surprise:
Anyone currently working in brand communication is facing fundamental yet compelling challenges. In an age in which we are flooded with information, consumers are becoming more critical and discerning. They are deploying ever finer filters, so that only the most relevant pieces of information ever reach them. Because of this development, traditional brand and advertising messages are far less likely to be seen.
Taken by Surprise is a collection of communication measures that are sophisticated and relevant enough to overcome these hurdles. They include limited special edition products and signature collaborations between brands, artists, and designers such as those between Julian Schnabel and Maybach, Issey Miyake and Dyson, Sagmeister and Levi’s, Olafur Eliasson and BMW, Jonathan Meese and Staehlemuehle, Terry Richardson and Colette as well as other innovative work by the likes of Damien Hirst, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, David Lynch, Geoff McFetridge, and Pharrell Williams.
