The Advent Table uses china and trinkets the designer discovered in the local area and integrated into the table design. Each day, the hotel pastry chef will leave a new treat in one of the cups or saucers.

Creating a ritual of food sharing around the installation is similar to ideas explored in our Conviviality Culture macrotrend.
