Artist Martin Butler and vegan chef Alexander Gershberg are hosting their multi-sensory eating experience in Seattle on three locations from September 9th through 14th.
Het Nieuwe Instituut supports the project by commissioning new unique design pieces from Dutch designers: Cedric van Parys, Funda Baysal, David Derksen and Mae Engelgeer which are included into the concept of the dinner.
On July 5th a succesful edition of The Chromatic Dinner was held at Het Nieuwe Instituut, in de garden of the Sonneveld House, where table linens, napkins, ceramics and an installation were presented by the designers.
The chromatic dinner is a monochromatic, audio, visual, olfactory and culinary experience which plays with all the senses. It’s inspired by the Chinese five elements: Tree, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water. Each course is created in accordance to the colour and underlying design principles of each element. Each course is designed in a different color, taste, smell, texture and sound to create a five-course chromatic dining experience that matches western design with eastern philosophy.
