Archichef is a design studio based in Amsterdam. It was born under the name dr. Architect & mr. Chef thanks to Pasquale Pontillo, an Italian architect who is fond of design and creative cooking. In Archichef’s view architecture, design and cuisine are disciplines related to the evolution of social habits. Many new objects, living spaces and foods have happened to change completely people’s lifestyles.
Pasquale Pontillo says: “My experience as an architect has definitely influenced my general point of view. Shapes, colours, materials, textures are things I am constantly focused on, even while I am cooking. The different combinations of these elements within the same plate or on the same table have always looked interesting and appealing to me. Besides this, I am also very curious to discover people’s reactions when they try for the first time my delights”.
Archichef was founded to develop both new recipes and new ways of presenting food in the stream of our food design experiences. Interaction between people and food and innovative packaging are our two key points.
Our goal is the enjoyment of simple and traditional recipes. Our staff arranges catering for dinners, openings and private events.
