A place to meet. A space for doodles. A place for memories. The dining table as a central meeting point in every home is transformed into a place for creativity, fun and exchange. An additive modular system makes it possible to attach a roll of textile with a canvas-like surface and texture to the table. This can be used as a base in everyday situations and during meetings with friends to paint and sketch in as the mood strikes you. The central idea is to use intuitive drawing as a ritual to create a space where people can meet, get to know each other, and strengthen their relationships. The meaningful canvas can be placed in the living room as a memorable work of art that reflects everyday life, conversations, friendship and emotions, contributing to the feeling of rootedness in a new environment.
