Meet one of the designers from House Doctor, who has designed the modular sofa, Feast. A dining sofa where you can sit around the table in a comfortable and inviting way. Read about the designer’s, Mathias Mejlby, thoughts behind the new design and the many possibilities Feast creates for a cosy and soft evening around the dining table.
Feast is an improved design of the traditional way where we gather around the table. The furniture creates a new category for House Doctor and is related to the phenomenon of ‘social dining’.
The trend ‘social dining’ invites everyone to sit around the dining table longer and enjoy each other’s company. Therefore, the comfort plays an important part.
In the sofa, we sit comfortable enjoying each other’s company and I want to pass this situation to the dining table. Feast therefore combines the best from two furniture. The comfort as we know from the sofa in the living room and the bench that enables us to gather many around the table.
Feast compliments House Doctor’s universe. The combination of the soft velour and the selection of our many tables of coated wood creates a unique look when the materials quite informally are combined. The contrasts underline the materials.
Feast provides you with lots of possibilities. With only three modules, it is possible to combine it in a variety of ways and adapt it for your personal needs in the home. The smart click system makes it easy to modulate and create your own look around the table.
The round shapes have been crucial in my design of Feast. It takes part in creating the feeling and experience of a comfortable dining experience.
