Mooncake tabel by +tongtong

July 13th, 2013 by retail design blog

A table concept where the diners eat directly off the tabletop, heightening the shared experience and establishing a stronger connection to their meal and surrounding environment. Mooncake was originally designed by +tongtong for a pop-up dinner for a fundraising event at Toronto’s Design Exchange. At the event, 150 guests, 30 at a time were brought into a room created in collaboration with local design studio Castor and Parts & Labour chef Matthew Matheson to eat off a communal table and have a shared dining experience.

Curvaceous, shapely trays, with small dints, holes and vessels sculpted in concert with Matheson’s intended offerings, could be removed from the table base, allowing for quick platings between each sitting.
