The dinner table: where we slow the day and move to deeper connections over food and drink.
Dinnertime in Brazil starts near 8 o’clock, and nothing about it is exact. Folks gather ’round for churasco, slicing off portions of meat as it comes off the barbeque in what may appear to be a disorganized feeding. With no formal start nor end, it is a fluid gathering for talking, laughing, and moving about while serving each other. The table is the center, with food and drinks piled high.
“I aspire to design products so well-loved
that my grandchildren want them”
