Rapt Studio's Table installation facilitates virtual connections

Rapt Studio is inviting people to take a seat at a virtual table that offers an "experience of connection" at VDF x Ventura Projects.

Exhibitor: Rapt Studio
Project title: Table

Rapt Studio is a group of designers, architects, and strategists based in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.

The studio is exhibiting a digital installation as part of the VDF x Ventura Projects collaboration named Table, which creates an "experience of connection during a time of social separation".

This virtual reality experience envisages a virtual greenhouse that hosts a table and chairs made from mycelium. Each seat is set up with seeds and gardening tools to evoke a dining table.

Participants are encouraged to make virtual conversation and connections with other people by sewing the seeds within the furniture, and observing its transformation into a "living table".
