The Kaiseki Table is designed for NYU’ restaurant in Oderzo, Italy, that serves dishes cooked on a teppanyaki. Inspired by the simplicity and precision of Japanese design, NYU’ is made to reflect an alternative cooking and eating experience based on modularity and transformation.

Modular metal elements slot into the central section of the table and can be changed easily numerous times throughout the course of the meal. The table provides for a deep recess for decorative flowers, trays for condiments and a deeper container for wine bottles. The two flexible elements on either side can be used as surfaces to put the food or turned over to allow more people to sit at the same table.
