Convivium is open space, a kitchen as an agile organised area, where being together becomes something to share anew every day, a place where a whole series of concrete actions – storing, preparing, cooking – are turned into rituals and emotions. Aromas in the kitchen tell of familiar tales or distant places, old recipes are handed down and new ones experimented and most importantly, everyone eats together around the big table. Convivium furnishes the walls of a room that becomes warm, welcoming and functional, with island-table in the centre and canopy shelves running round the whole room at picture rail height.
The island for everyday rituals with worktop in 20 cm thick stainless steel has a built-in wood-slatted table. The design concept of Convivium: the closed area of the made-to-measure Closet and the island, an open area for preparation, cooking and eating food.
