Table Journeys is a collection of short stories that recount memories and travel experiences of individuals, friends and relatives – all shared around the dining table. Commissioned as part of a family of furniture for one of our projects: the House Upstairs, the assemblage of table, bench and stool recount journeys from design to product – from teak forest to carpentry yard in Indonesia – and finally to be housed in Singapore. The table is a three-metre long dinner installation: its surface is also a shallow tray-like repository for displaying small objects chanced upon during travel; a careful collection of miniature experiences and journeys which can be kept and unfolded, told and retold to guests over dinner at the House Upstairs.
