Bio-Design Explorations: Meet the Visionary Food Scientist Leading the Charge

PUBLIC SERV-CE and bioscience share a common ground in exploring the boundaries between the 'made' and the 'born'. Our approach to creation uses natural and futuristic design elements to blur the lines between nature and fashion.

But beyond the realm of fashion, bio-design also has the potential to reshape our food system by intentionally changing our environment.

Leading this movement is David Zilber, a renowned visionary, avant-garde food scientist and former Head of Fermentation at NOMA. Zilber has been on a mission to revolutionize the food industry through the power of bioscience. He is at the forefront of using a combination of bacteria, microbes, and yeast, to build a more just and sustainable food system for all. And it's not just science that's driving this change, design is playing an equally important role. By pushing the limits of creativity and ingenuity, designers are helping to redefine what's possible in this emerging field.

As an application scientist, Zilber continues to experiment with new techniques, drawing inspiration from cutting-edge technologies such as data and artificial intelligence.

At the core of Zilber's work is a desire to transform the way people think about food: Through intentional design, he hopes to create a food system that respects the environment and promotes the well-being of all living beings. A change he hopes to inspire through the power of design.

By exploring new ideas and pushing the boundaries of what's possible, Zilber aims to positively impact the lives of countless people around the world. His work is a testament to the power of creativity and innovation in shaping the future of food.
