Create creative meetings. : A visual interpretation of situations and functions around a community table (English)
This work is a study in how I as a designer can create the conditions for people to work, socializing and refreshments at one place. A place that encourages creativity, where I made a suggestion at a community table designed for Urban Deli’s new business. By visiting various similar sites I have identified what I think is important in an environment like this and then gave an answer to it in a visual form.
A cafe-office will draw lots of different people. Which guests come here to work? Residents, freelancers, but also those who may want surrounded by a new creative work place and maybe leave their regular offices for a day at Urban Deli. There will also be those who come for coffee and talk with a friend, what is this furniture that might be necessary in this environment? and how can I as a designer meet so many people’s needs as possible?
During this work, I have come to the conclusion that a community table is more a just a table. It is a place that will cater to the various needs that arise around a temporary workplace. This has proven to be a place that screens but is open, it is a place that offers two different table heights, it must be power outlets, hanger bag, a separate part for the important phone call that you want to take undisturbed. There should be a place for brainstorming, it must be well lit around a community table so that the people sitting there not going to sleep, it must also be sound-absorbing elements in the environment so that the sounds will be somewhat milder, but more importantly so, a community table as a large table.
