Monogram Dinner by Design

Toronto, Canada

Gensler was one of a select group of designers invited by Design Exchange to create a memorable dining experience/installation to benefit two local nonprofits. Given a 12x12x12 foot space, the team’s futuristic design inspiration came from the concept of a Möbius strip that would wrap the entire space while also serving as the dining surface. Angular and illuminated by diffused LED lights, details included designer geometric chairs, acrylic vignette place settings and a stark white Corian table top capable of charging electronics wirelessly. An entirely volunteer effort, the project took three months to conceptualize and was installed in a single day. Enjoyed by more than 600 people, the installation helped raise needed funds.
