Wunderchef Kevin Sousa is opening a restaurant: Salt of the Earth. I'm happy to be able to contribute to the function and look of the place. I've been working with him and architects Doug and Liza Cruze on designs for three large communal tables and seating.
The tables are going to be monoliths of white oak and steel. One of the main objectives was to allow flexibility in how the seating can be grouped. The area under the tables are going to be completely open thanks to a steel substructure strengthening the thirteen and a half foot span. The edges of the tables will be joined with dovetails.
