If there is anyone who has perfected the design of the dinner party, it is Laila Gohar. The chef and food installation artist specializes in elaborate culinary spectacles, hanging tomato clusters from the ceiling for a Samsung pop-up one night, then building asparagus bouquets for the Met Gala the next.
For those hosting their own at-home soirées, Laila Gohar recently launched a collection of placemats and servingware with design brand Hay, as well as a tableware brand, Gohar World, developed with her sister Nadia. But the main course came during Milan Design Week, where she unveiled a collaboration with Muller Van Severen.
In keeping with the Belgian design duo’s vibrant portfolio, the Pigeon Table features a series of brightly coloured polyethylene surfaces suspended on galvanized steel rods. The tiered levels are perfect for elaborate arrangements of wine, cheese and crackers, yet also nod to the mud brick pigeon towers in Gohar’s native Cairo.
Plan your next six-course buffet around this design’s series of colourful tiered surfaces.
