Culture of sharing


Bamboo steamers are made according to an ancient technique, where nothing is glued and thin layers of wood create a concentric structure that keeps everything together. 


Fascinated by this technique, I started to research and experiment with the idea of layering, and what can be placed in between. 


The final design is a structure which invites people  to sit around a table and enjoy the culture of sharing, referencing the tradition in Chinese culture, where meals are consumed around a circular table that rotates.
