BIG CONCEPT, SMALL PACKAGE. For this HOSPITALITY design a dramatic center community table is the focal point of the pint sized taste kitchen. TASTE was conceived as part tasting kitchen, part cooking show. A wrap around counter/bar faces the open kitchen. The close proximity of guests to chefs are intended to facilitate an interactive and immersive relationship between cooking and eating, and celebrate dining as theater. The appearance of volume was achieved with the installation of a custom stretch reflective ceiling. Located in a corner storefront space, the dramatic center stage setting is home to a rotating schedule of unique culinary-driven experiences—from pop-up dinners with renowned international guest chefs to serving as a legitimate test kitchen.
