In the era of digital, in which everything is intangible, we are committed to transform the ritual of cooking in an experience that allows the user to regain maximum senses.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Banco redefines the kitchen table, improving its performance, transforming it into a tool. A furniture system integrated with worktops designed for different purposes that each user can adapt to their needs.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The kitchen dilutes its limits. A piece of furniture that creates a dynamic space that integrates various activities. The table, as an essential part of the rite of cooking, becomes the centrepiece of space, promoting a meeting and exchange.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was developed in Montevideo, Uruguay, for a period of 5 months.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The product combines wood, metal and stone. The processing of these materials is done by looking for a careful balance between contemporary production systems and handcrafted processes.
The selected wood is oak, and for the countertops, its finish is done with non-toxic oils. Stone countertops are made of artificial stone giving an extreme resistance to all activities performed in the kitchen. Table legs and structure are made of stainless steel with powder paint.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The product was developed as a system. The components include countertops that can be configured for food processing and preparation, washing or cooking.
The table width is 90 cm, and a variable length from 45cm to 225 cm. Its height is adjustable from 85 to 93 cm.
The product is carried by modules and finally assembled at its place.

Our work is the result of a thoughtful analysis of how contemporary life evolves and changes constantly. As a result we build a critical view about the fundamental role played by furniture structuring and articulating space.
We work on two premises: the central kitchen table and its re-interpretation as an instrument of great performance, as well as a careful analysis off the main aspects of function and ergonomics involved in the kitchen.
