Designer Profile – Ahmad Fakhry
Ahmad studied Industrial Design at NCAD. His love of food and interest in all things gastronomic led him to create his project, ‘Eating Objects’. Ahmad describes his project as ‘Design Exploration of Food, Molecular Gastronomy & Eating Experiences’. This idea is not for every day dining. Ahmad has a vision of a sort of pop up restaurant taking his idea on board, traveling to restaurants and bringing new gastronomical experiences to people.
