Emilie Baltz is a sensory storyteller.
A French-American food technologist and experience designer who focuses on food, Baltz teaches Experience Design at the School of Visual Arts (SVA), is the founder of the Food Design Studio at Pratt Institute, and lectures around the world on the transformative power of food experience in the lives of creators and consumers. She has published two books and won the Best First Cookbook in the World at the Prix Gourmand in the Louvre in Paris.
Emilie is the founding member of NEW INC, the first museum-led incubator hosted at the New Museum, and is also a member of New Lab, an interdisciplinary manufacturing lab in Brooklyn that serves entrepreneurs who are defining the future of technology and human experience. Most recently, she was awarded a Simons Foundation Fellowship to explore the science of human perception through the lens of sweetness.
A creator of immersive experiences, innovation workshops and products for major brands that catalyze new ways of thinking, inventing and engaging with the world, Emilie’s work—at the crossroads of design, performance, and visual arts—has gained her international press attention. She holds a Masters of Industrial Design from Pratt Institute and, most definitely, believes in Unicorns.
