GREY AREA

2017 | Experiential Design

AN ACHROMATIC DINNER EXPERIENCE.

Grey Area was the first immersive pop-up dinner experience created for Dubai Design Week 2017. Through the minds of the designers and chefs, TINKAH and INKED, a dinner experience welcomed 40 guests each evening, from November 13th – 18th, 2017.

Through a series of achromatic food courses, served on a series of custom designed tableware pieces, guests were taken on a journey from which pure colors were vacuumed.

Guests discovered form without the familiarity of color contrast. Reception and perception of objects were judged from a colorless perspective, which gave guests the opportunity to experience their surroundings and taste in a completely different, challenging and entertaining way. The tableware pieces were designed and also manufactured by Tinkah. Material finishes included ceramic, parian, magma, porcelain, concrete and glass.
