    Event description

    Join Snøhetta and guest collaborators for an exhibition and participatory conversation exploring how embracing different perspectives can build incredible outcomes.

    Over a single afternoon in late April a group of uniquely-skilled participants joined Snøhetta designers to create a speculative proposal for a single, ubiquitous item – the table.
    An object laden with utility yet heavy with complexity, a table can simultaneously represent and perform many functions. For Snøhetta, the table is a space that allows us to come together, where roles and disciplines can be dissolved, and where ambition and intention become aligned. Central to Snøhetta’s core design processes, it also offers a platform to ‘table’ critical questions facing the design world today: How do we come together, and why? What does it truly mean to have ‘a seat at the table’, and who gets one?

    Empowering and enabling fluid design thinking, invited collaborators were guided through a series of core Snøhetta workshop tools, implemented across many of the organisation’s notable international projects. The collaborators stepped into a transdisciplinary space where each other’s skills, and unique perspectives could conceptualise a specific design outcome, together. The collective vision then decided what this ‘table’ would facilitate and represent; its form and function.

    Join Snøhetta at the table in their newly established Melbourne Studios. Discover what this somewhat unconventional process involved, and its results. Converse with some of the collaborators and designers themselves. Take your own place at the table over design tools and refreshments to contribute to and take away, new perspectives on how people can better come together.
