Since the earliest civilisations, the act of dining has been a community practice and evolved into many different forms with time.
Context | The Act of Dining
Due to the technological era we live in and the social pattern caused by social media, the act of dining is no longer focused on social interactions rather on virtual ones.
Container | The Space
The corridor no longer acts as a transitional space of users in motion. A new dimension of crystallization is given to it: the Act of Dining. A culinary experience unraveled, the tables featured various elements exploring light, textures, sound and scent. The monochrome grey palette gave the feeling of a stage set. A mirror was set between diners, with a mobile phone stand beneath it. The tableware reflected the needs of today's society; a comb replaced a fork, a medicine box replaced a knife, and oversized spoons represented modern excess." - AD
Content | The Journey
"Silent Echoes" is a journey where your senses are stimulated towards a state of infinite reflection, disorientation and re-questioning. It echoes today’s world of individualization, self- absorption and virtual interactions.
