THE DOUBLE CLUB

RESTAURANT

A new series of Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram’s BREEDING TABLES slotted in amongst Congolese plastic tables in the restaurant of the Double Club.

The Congolese tables were matched with the kind of white, moulded plastic chairs that are ubiquitous to every Kinshasa restaurant, whereas the BREEDING TABLES were paired with the what could be considered the plastic chairs' ancestor, Vico Magistretti's Gaudi chair for Heller.

In direct opposition to the plastic tables from Congo, which comply with the modernist requirements of simple and functional design at low production cost, the BREEDING TABLES are granite and steel, coated in black and represent high-finish post-industrial furniture. Each of the BREEDING TABLES is a unique object, parametrically generated by a custom-made computer application according to the designer’s specifications.
