eon ju park: aperitivo table it's aperitivo time competition shortlisted revealed

‘aperitivo table’ designed by eon ju park

‘aperitivo table’ designed by eon ju park from korea, is one of the 100 shortlisted entries from our recent designboom competition ‘it’s aperitivo time’ in collaboration with peroni nastro azzurro and alessi.

when we are invited to parties we often gather around a table to eat and discuss. but often, most square tables do not quite do the job. the ‘aperitivo table’ is a simple and stylish way in which to hold your food and drink. the table looks like a tree with branches of small circles which allow you to place and remove glasses with ease – the table itself appearing like a small party space decorated by colorful drinks and food.

the projects of the competition’s shortlisted winners will be exhibited from september 30th to october 4th, 2009 at the institute of contemporary arts (ICA) in london. the final results will be revealed after the opening of the show.

  • Cocktail glasses, red wine and champagne glasses?.. hmm i thought this competition was to promote Peroni as the accompaniment for appetitive? is that a dessert on there too? What has a dessert got to do with an aperitif? I hope there are not going to be 99 more designs like this? Its a nice design for a party, but has no relevance to Peroni’s brief.

  • Beautiful object from the top view….
    As said above, we don’t see the spirit of the Brand. I mean the competition asked to emphasize the Peroni Apero Time maybe “Alessi Apero Time” was more suitable for this…
