Eat & Play

Words

‘Eat & Play’ by industrial designer Rodrigo Caula from Vancouver, Canada, is a response to the idea of recreation as social reform. The iconic playground provides proof of how we use the space to create social interaction. The association with playgrounds provides a gathering place for children, as well as adults, making the space ideal for conversation and new friendships. With this project, he has given the communal eating space a transformation by turning the dining room into a playground. By removing the legs and suspending the surfaces, the tabletop and seats are turned into swings, giving new life to how we interact during eating hours.
