The Cenacle (from Latin cēnāculum “dining room”, later spelt coenaculum and semantically drifting towards “upper room”), also known as the “Upper Room”, is a room in the David’s Tomb Compound in Jerusalem, traditionally held to be the site of the Last Supper. The word is a derivative of the Latin word cēnō, which means “I dine”.
Industrialized garden kitchen
A place where curiosities could be satisfied. Rejecting the obvious and embracing the unknown, allowing the visitors to indulge themselves in a multi-sensual space, pushing the boundaries of design and food. Communal culinary experience bringing people together around the table over food and its preparation.
No creation without tradition. No tradition without creation.
The avatar of experiential exclusivity is re-inventing itself as a “pop-up” concept, but this time the user is not a spectator but an active performer. A city-within-a-city where location is not any more specific and fixed. A different supper club, where an old storage container is transformed into a nomad kitchen where the 8 users are gathered around the ‘monastic’ table and are introduced to the full production cycle: from growing food, to picking it, storing it, cooking it and eventually eating it.
Hortus conclusus depicted by Meister des Frankfurter Paradiesgärtleins. Hortus conclusus is a Latin term, meaning literally “enclosed garden”. It is derived from the Vulgate Bible’s Canticle of Canticles (also called the Song of Songs or Song of Solomon) 4:12, in Latin: “Hortus conclusus soror mea, sponsa, hortus conclusus, fons signatus” (“A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse; a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed up.”
