Being outside and preparing and enjoying a meal with friends and family has inspired Eline Simons to create a table that would combine all these aspects. ‘Involving everyone in the preparation of a meal enhances the mood.’ The Chef’s Table contains a stainless steel tray for briquettes with a grill plate over it. On top of this there will be cedar planks for cooking the food. The hot air from the burning coals will remain trapped inside the table to a certain extent, which will turn the table into a heat source for the entire evening. Simons has designed three versions: a wooden table, one made out of stone, and one out of metal. All three are centred around grilling the food, but the preparations and tastes will differ with each table.
