INTER-COURSES // Taste Workshop at Front SF
A collaboration with FRONT design director, Lisa Mishima, for the very first Taste Workshop... a Valentine’s themed eating experience.
We designed Inter-courses with relationships as the key focus - the relationship between colors and flavors, the food and the table, and the participants with each other. It is about the magic that happens once one course is served to the next.
The main component of the evening revolved around a color placemat. Its colors determined the flavors and emotions of what was about to be served. The guests were directed to pick a side and follow the colors as they evolved. The folding of it in between courses speaks to the space and time in between a course and required participation from the guests, urging them to physically get closer over the course of the event.
Three courses of small bites and cocktails were served by Lisa and Leah from a rolling cart that they treated with colored strips, integrating the serving cart itself into the choreography.
Each course focused on an activity that required guests to share and collaborate.
