In Asian families, a round dining table is seen as a medium to share food and more importantly to gather around as a family. The core function of it is to put dishes in the middle so everyone will share their food, which encourages interaction and better bonding time between family members. However as design bounds towards purity and functionality, an object’s identity is now challenged along with the designer’s evolving perspective on her root and surroundings. A question is then raised: Up to what extent is an object’s diminish of feature still acceptable until it loses its significance? As the table is shifting its function to an individual dining arrangement, does it now lose its fundamental reason of it being a dining table? A complex dining table stripped down to bare minimum that sums up the contemporary interpretation of the designer’s root identity – a depiction of how she was raised, influences around her and her statement towards design perspective.
