Our very first project: Venusian kitchen - a lovestory about food
Venusian Kitchen embodies life, with the love for our food as a guiding force. It is a collaboration between photographer Elsbeth Tijssen and Henriëtte Tomassen, both founders of Venusian Collective. It's a book, it's art, it's poetry, wall hangings. And it is so much more in our dreams.
Venusian Kitchen is about the kitchen of Venus. Where only love and beauty are served. It is an ode to our food and our daily life. It's a celebration of friendship, family and meetings with strangers. Photographer Elsbeth Tijssen made intimate portraits of vegetables and people. She pictured compelling landscapes of orchards and fields. And created enchanting still lifes of simple ingredients for a fulfilling meal.
Venusian Kitchen is a series of 150 photographs assimilated in a rich culinary photobook. It's a work of art bursting with intimate portraits, poetry, stories and recipes. Venusian Kitchen is about the beauty of the usual. A romance of two sprouts of chicory. The richness of borlotti beans on a plate. Clouds in the sky. It's the magic of everyday life.

The photographs life-size in an exhibition, or as fine art print in your home. All photographs are available as fine art prints, in museum quality. We have variable sizes, framed or unframed. Check it out here. It is our biggest dream to exhibit the photographs worldwide. In extra large, to blow the beauty of daily life into the world.
Spin off: royal wallhangings As an exclusive spin-off of the book, we've created a series of eight wall hangings: The Enchanted Collection. Allow yourself to be wooed by our jacquard woven masterpieces. EE Exclusives weaves our dreams in the most sustainable way: OEKO-TEX® STeP certified.
What's cooking? Venusian Kitchen portrays everyday life. Isn't it wonderful to have these images appearing in our daily life, as tea towels, tiles, carpets, pillows and blankets - it bubbles en bustles in our kitchen.
Covered with love Gentle falling blossoms and bright green cabbage leaves: our tablecloths are designed based on Elsbeth Tijssen's photos and take you into the heart of vibrant nature. Sustainably produced and printed on solid eco-cotton. Available in our webshop soon. An asset to a cosy atmosphere in your home. Leave it on your table all day, table dressing to the max!
Table pleasures Attention and appreciation for everything on the table gives a golden touch to your day. Together with ceramist Ingrid Wens, we created Venusian Kitchen tableware to add even more pleasure to your meal. Ingrid has designed a refined Venusian pattern for us which she has incorporated in two different plates and a beautiful bowl. Elegant and with a hint of gold applied on the edges.
Crossing all borders Venusian Kitchen takes you on a journey, lets you discover culinary stories and taste surprising flavours, look at our food in a new and familiar way. We want to spread our stories worldwide. Our first culinary trip starts in a country nearby, a country of poets and thinkers.
