Conversation for Three


Conversation for Three (C43) is an emotionally responsive table. A dining experience with a difference, combining art, science, theatre and philosophy. A table that detects two diner’s emotional changes during a conversation and projects different films, animations, conversational suggestions, film quotes and emits sounds depending on the emotions being detected.

The conical salt and pepper shaker rotate 360 degrees when a diner has a drink, almost like the table is wagging its tail at the pleasure of the occasion.
