Picnic table has been forgotten in contemporary public space. Too strong to be ranked as one of design hits of urban furniture but so functional that nobody is reluctant to use it, either from its primary function as a table or through hundreds of different configurations, from ping pong table to makeshift stage.
From ENORME we think it's time to pay tribute to that reviled picnic table. Stacking nine basic picnic tables, we build an amplified urban furniture, a small gazebo and stands, a child's maze or just a place to hold four picnics in a simultaneous way. A Monument to theses afternoons of glory picnic tables have given us... An utopia of picnic tables... PICNIQUETOPIE!!!
