Dialogue is a delicate process - too often replaced by more confrontational communication forms. A table, is a physical and visual bridge between two people as they converse; a tool that encourages exchange. Por-tables is an ongoing design project to develop portable, wearable tables, that physically impact on human conversation. The project explores the idea of the table as a connection point, aid and mediator: A visual and symbolic tool for the emotional process of communication and dialogue.Por-tables are designed for specific contexts and situations and can be created to fit other unique situations conversation needs

Exhibited at Dialogborde, Brænderigården, Denmark, 2009.
