A Design Award : A Banco Kitchen table is designed by team members Sebastián Rial and Federico Senociaín at LA AGENCIA in late 2015.In the era of digital, in which everything is intangible, the team was committed to transform the ritual of cooking in an experience that allows the user to regain maximum senses.
UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE TABLE :
Banco has redefined the kitchen table keeping in mind the ease of operations, by 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.
HOW DOES THE FLOW WORKS :
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.
The project was developed in Montevideo, Uruguay, for a period of 5 months.
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.
