New York, USA
In keeping with the organizer’s objective of providing a single communal table while also increasing the interaction among guests, we introduced a series of ‘Y’-shaped intersections. The ‘Y’ shape plan allows attendees to talk with more fellow diners. Typically, a guest can talk comfortably with the person directly across the table and to one’s left and right.
The ‘Y’ offers lines of conversation with additional people in multiple diagonal directions. The outboard wings of the ‘Y’s also give guests sight lines to the many others in attendance at the 140-person fund raising event.
