Room & Board 'Eat with your Eyes Open'

Around the world, professional chefs have long experimented with pushing the experience of design and dining a bit further.

In an effort to change the traditional restaurant experience, many work closely with talented architects and designers —including graphic design, to move beyond taste to create full sensory dining experiences.

The restaurant provides the perfect environment for integrating the functions of a dining room, living room, meeting room, and even a courtyard or playground.

Thus, not only are taste and sight intentional, but smell, hearing, and haptic have become equally important parts of the dining experience.
