Toronto-based multidisciplinary studio ODAMI have designed a modular dining table that gently nudges diners to disconnect and be present, allowing them to truly appreciate their meal and the people they share it with.
The SARA dining table, so named after debuting at SARA restaurant in Toronto, is inspired by the forms and sense of the shoreline — cultivating a place of calm escape that encourages diners to stash their smartphones away.
- Hidden, spill-proof cell phone compartments are accessible through a removable table top inlay with storage for two to three phones
- Large, hand-turned locally-sourced ash wood base anchors the table to the ground
- Curved quartz table top surface introduces a subtle sense of movement
- Capacity for the tables to fit in interlocking configurations, allowing for them to be purchased in multiples to customize table length
ODAMI is a Spanish Canadian architecture and design team, comprised of husband + wife Michael Fohring and Aránzazu González Bernardo.
