“ANXIETY IS PART OF THE COMMUNITY”
Canteen / Dining table
The name of this table refers to a social reality that FOS confronts through Social Design.
We each have a kind of personal space around us, which, when impinged upon, we become aware of as a tangible boundary between ourselves and others. These boundaries, or differences, and the anxieties they conjure are obstacles to communication. When we embrace them, we can overcome them—and that’s when we really connect and make progress.
“Anxiety is part of the community” is a dining/canteen table that addresses this condition. By being just 10 cm narrower than ordinary tables, the design breaks our inherent intimacy boundaries naturally and the opportunity for a new kind of closeness can evolve.
Each tabletop is a different cross-section of the color wheel, making each of them unique in its color scheme.
