Vision: Create a way to stimulate conversation and interaction during a meal.
Solution: Two large concentric tables, where the inner one rotates on a motorized turntable. As the meal proceeds, people on the inside and outside tables will move with respect to each other, creating new opportunities for interaction.
Based on an initial concept design, our team designed additional structural supports to ensure the table was rigid (important when it will be moving!).
A local fabrication partner built the metal turntable and motor system, as well as a 360 degree panoramic screen above the table.
