ART OF DINING, NGV
Completed: April 2019
For the 2019 Art of Dining, Christopher Boots reimagines his signature materiality of hand
finished metals, polished quartz, natural stone and gentle illumination, bringing his idea of
‘lavish excess’ to the table by giving diners both a tactile experience and a visual feast.
The work explores the architecture and geometry of organic shapes and
structures found in nature. Inspired by forms forged by natural elements suggesting surreal
and mythical ideas about creation and change, our designs elevate and transform
materials in ways that highlight their natural beauty.
Stone plates, jeweled flatware, and striking floral treatments adorn our table encircling our
mosaiced quartz and terrazzo luminaire in the table’s centre.
