Jen is the co-founder of The Kitchen. She also led the interior and graphic design of The Kitchen flagship family of restaurants in Boulder.
Jen grew up in Up Country Maui, Hawaii where vegetables came from the garden, eggs from the chicken coop, and bread was baked by the neighbor down the road. Dinner was an experience of sitting with family and friends around a large table, enjoying fresh food and connecting with community.
Jen’s early experiences with food and community inspired an architectural and interior design style that focuses on creating community gathering spaces. Jen’s vision and design is infused throughout every element of The Kitchen restaurants, from the Community Table to her handmade chandeliers and custom-designed lighting as well as the creation of The Kitchen brand and visual identity.
Jen works full time as an artist and designer and has exhibited her work throughout the world. For more information about her work, including public sculpture, space and product design, please visit http://www.jenlewinstudio.com
