At the Table

Good company, great food, and a nice glass of wine; the dinner table is where we get the best ideas, contacts and solutions. At the Table is a concept by Tobias Jansen in which the guests can not only sink their teeth into the chef’s offerings, but also into a predetermined theme. “A perfect analogy exists between the different courses of a dinner and the structure of a good conversation,” Jansen says. “The first course is the icebreaker and makes people curious for more, the main course is slightly heavier fare, and the dessert is the finishing touch that leads to the conclusion.” In addition to designing a recognisable corporate identity, he has created purpose-built tables and chairs offering something to hold onto during a heated discussion. The waterjet-cut wooden furniture can be taken apart by turning a single screw, which makes them easily transportable.
