scholten and baijings: paper table

in contemporary dining culture, one encounters worlds of difference.across the globe, people jab little plastic forks into fatty fries served in distinctive red and yellow cartons, while experiments in molecular gastronomy are served in specially designed crockery, resulting in an aesthetic immersion that is reserved for a happy few.

amsterdam-based design duo scholten & baijings‘ ‘paper table’ is their vision for the art of dining. the collection of tableware settings is part of the total table design project that premiered at object rotterdam 2010 at the las palmas building on the kop van zuid.
