Everything started with a personal reason to change career and the start off a new business. We have been investing time and energy in the project ‘Cenam Sumo’, that is born as a series of private dinners where food and designed were combined to create a unique and tailor-made eating, social and cultural experiences. The dinners took place at the end of 2011 here in Bangkok. Since then the project has continued to evolve and the second part of the project is currently being developed.
Cenam Sumo is a project that combines food and design to bring people together for a unique dining and meeting experience. We take the initial inspiration from our own culture and traditions – cenam sumo is the Latin word for ‘dining’ – where cooking is more than a everyday gesture but a conviviality ritual to welcome new friends gathered around a table. The meeting experience becomes, therefore, an essential part of the concept behind Cenam Sumo project. Food and design are at the same time part of and means to a social and cultural experience, an occasion to meet new people, sharing ideas, stories and to simply enjoy. Food and design mingle creating unexpected, surprising and yet ideal combinations. The menus draw mostly upon the traditional Italian cuisine: hand made pasta is the main ingredient yet proposed with unusual combinations. The set designs are unique, conceived to enhance the eating experience by welcoming and wondering the guests. At the same time, each menu and each set-design is thought so as to meet the guests’ characters and characteristics. The flavors, the colours, the shapes, the lights, everything is the result of a careful tailor-made selection that makes the person feeling like at home while experiencing something completely new and sometimes stranger.
