    Dining Together Matters
    2013
     
    This concept is focused on creating an experience and encouraging an event. Banquet is a statement piece which celebrates dining and symbolises a special ritual. It aims to evoke feelings of grandeur, intimacy and seclusion through a simple, pared down aesthetic.
     
    The element of a detachable curtain offers a playful atmosphere, reminding the user of childhood experiences in tent and fort like structures.
  • Dining is an important ritual. For many, the act of dining and eating together has been lost. For several individuals, dining has been reduced to a rushed affair. We “eat” but do not engage in a dining experience.
     
    In contemporary society, there are numerous factors to blame for this outcome. Increasingly, we see a large proportion of people eating on ‘the move’. Dining habits have changed.
     
    Banquet, is one piece from the collection; Dining Together Matters, which aims to encourage a different way. My intention is to celebrate the joy of eating and dining. Establishing the importance of eating with others is the core message of this project.
