Academic conferences and seminars might be associated with uninspiring talks, bad food and poor logistics, so when The National Academy of the Arts (Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo - KHiO) wanted to make a proper event for design dialogue they knew they needed to change the format completely.
Well-seated in a 120 years old, large, wooden building at Bygdøy - originally a museum for agricultural tools - are over a hundred hungry guests. They are here to experience a dinner prepared by cooks from three of Oslo's best restaurants; Smalhans, Fru K and Kolonihagen.
It all began up at the old cabin Sæterhytten on Dronningberget, where everyone met to a introductory speech by Idun Leinaas, followed by a warming, bright orange pumpkin soup heated over a bonfire and served in the chill autumnal air. As people finished their cup of soup, it was time to continue on in one of the four knowledge groups.
Food Studio invites you to the first of a series of courses that explore techniques and philosophies that encourage more sustainable cooking in the home.

— Food Lab
Food Lab is where good food meets good ideas. Where food is more than just something you eat. A place where food becomes conceptualized through physical and mental experiments. A memory. An experience. An object of theory. Art. Politics. Social interference. Cultural inheritance. An idea.
Whether working with independent individuals or established actors Food Lab wishes to challenge the idea of food as just food.
