Bergne the dinner

Designer Sebastian Bergne is throwing a dinner party where 15 years worth of table-wear will be used for its designed purpose.

A Table will be exhibited at Great Western Studios, where by day the objects can be observed soberly and by night they can be used – potentially – in the context of a Dionysian orgiastic feast.  Just don’t break anything.

‘I guess it came about from a desire to show products designed for the food domain and to let people use them – to appreciate them. And it’s a good way to share them,’ says Bergne.

At least two new pieces will be included in the display. One is a glass water filter piece where the filter can be removed, leaving a carafe and water glass.

The other, Bergne says, is ‘a cheese plate which gives individual portions’ – which all sounds very egalitarian.

Bergne, who designs his own glassware, is also known for his Tefal Cookware and an ice-cream machine he developed for Heston Blumenthal.

The exhibition runs from 23 Feb – 8 March, at Great Western Studios, 65 Alfred Studios, W2, but the dinners on 28 Feb, 2 March and 8 March are already sold out. For more information on Bergne’s products go to http://www.buysebastianbergne.com
