Experience

THE CHROMATIC DINNER

VIENNA DESIGN WEEK

29.9.–3.10.2019

Cuisine, art, and science meet in a restaurant. What admittedly sounds like the beginning of a bad joke is without a doubt one of the most exciting gastronomic experiences in this year’s festival: THE CHROMATIC DINNER explores new  possibilities of interdisciplinary encounters. The result: a multisensory meal in the form of a sensational monochromatic, auditory, visual, culinary, and olfactory array for all the senses. Inspired by Kandinsky’s theory of color and influenced by the Chinese philosophy of five elements (wood, fire, metal, water, and earth), each of the five courses corresponds to a certain color, taste, flavor, smell,  texture, or sound. After productions in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dubai, and Beijing, the award-winning dinner can be experienced for the first and only time in Vienna – Western design meets Far Eastern philosophy at the heart of the festival. So the way to the heart is through the stomach.
