Designer’s Table is an experimental project in tableware design and dinner experience proposed by Studio Raphaël Lutz.

Raphaël Lutz is a product designer who graduated from ECAL in 2012. Great-grandson of one of the founders of the prestigious Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne, he grew up in the restaurant of his parents. Since opening his own design studio in 2012, he works on various projects such as scenographies, unique or serial object design, tableware and tableware concepts.  Given his entrepreneurial projects and experience, Raphaël Lutz is often called to be a jury member in start-up competitions or for the HES-SO master jury,  or to give presentations on design at EPFL. In 2018, he joined the editorial committee of French restaurant guide Gault&Millau as a food design expert and researcher in dinner experience.

In 2016, Raphaël Lutz opened Le LAB, an innovation lab dedicated to multidisciplinary experimentation through workshops, meetups and exchanges between creative people, companies and start-ups to produce innovative solutions and concepts. At Le LAB’s 180m2 space, Raphaël Lutz hosts the Designers’ table, a series of culinary events where 20 guests enjoy a total experience, tasting a seasonal and regional menu created by young chefs in a tableware specially designed by Raphaël Lutz for each season. The concept behind the Designer’s table is to create a dialogue between the guest and its meal and ti question our relationship with food and  around the act of dining.
After two successful seasons of Designer’s Table in 2017 and 2018, a third season is now in preparation and will take place in November and December 2019 with 9 dates.
