served while eating. The lid of each bowl is not only to keep the food fresh but also a cutting board.
The fire realized as movable gas burners complete the product family, as well as the idea of the cooking scenario developed by this project. By pulling the two table tops apart, the gas burners can be clicked inside little modules that slide in a hidden track. These modules can be moved easily by hands from one side of the table to the other. Thus the stove turns into flexible cooking tools that can be adapted to individual needs in terms of cooking position and number of fire places. A ceramic bowl surrounding the gas burner while cooking serves as pad and heat isolation.
The Cooking Table is part of Moritz Putzier’s diplom thesis named Back to tomorrow, Dining culture through the change of time, presented at the University of Arts Bremen and won the Interieur Awards 2014.
