Every time we eat, in western civilizations, we have objects that define how we are going to eat; a plate is a delimited area where we place food and from where we manipulate it. “Table Waltz” is an experimental lunch to study what happened if we ate without plates, knifes, forks and even glasses, the tools that define our behavior and set protocols. Instead the guests were encouraged to use their hands, a very liberating experience that connects us with our childhood.
Table Walt is a project by Pepi de Boissieu in collaboration with AOO, where we were in charge of the furniture with our table structure Lu (which we covered with a white canvas) and the Bravo stool. And just like this, the table for lunch was ready. Pepi placed the food directly on top of the white canvas, each course had its different sauce and motion to do. The result is an incredible pictorial choreography of what eating among six friends looks like.
