This table for four was designed in response to a competition sponsored by a Korean kitchen manufacturer. The theme of the competition was Kitchen of the Future. The premise for our design solution was: Now that we already live in the future, as far as food is concerned, it seems like everybody wants to recover old values, grow and make our own small batches of high quality, natural, pure foods. Why then, would we want to prepare these precious ancestral edibles in a futuristic environment? Why should not we support a similar approach to the way we eat our food? The customary way to enjoy a significant meal for Koreans is to cook it at the table. In fact, Koreans have not, as a group, been cooking in modern streamlined kitchens for not very long at all. Dining, seated on chairs has become more common but is by no means typical. The spread of the chair in floor-based cultures is not something we should be proud of. In virtually all floor-based cultures, there has been, since colonisation, a class and age stigma attached to the chair versus floor question. Sitting on the floor is traditional but also practical in many ways, and even healthy. It is a myth of modernism that chairs and high tables represent a better way to sit, even if it is more "modern". As one of many of its revolts against modernism, the post-war counterculture reclaimed the floor as a dominant living plane. This proposal is a light-hearted vote cast in the direction of critical evolution.
