‘High-concept design meets haute cuisine’, Monogram® Dinner by Design has set foot in Calgary for the very first time at the Alberta College of Art + Design. Co-founded by GE Monogram® appliances and The Social Conceige, The Monogram® Dinner by Design events have already inspired other Canadian cities like Vancouver and Toronto. The Calgary’s edition brought 10 acclaimed and talented designers from interior design, architecture and event design studios to create, without the imagination boundary, artistic and fantastical tablescapes. Some of these designers/studios include: Connie Young Design, I-D Bohemia, Amanada Hamilton, Alykhan Velji, Nyla Free Designs and Corea SotropaEach tablescape exhibits unique flavor, concept and aesthetic. One could only imagine a whole different dining experience from one table to another. A cocktail reception was held the night before the big dinner event where attendees got to sit at one of these tablescapes to enjoy a multi-course feast and wine expereince curated by Leslie Echino – Owner/ Wine Director of Blink Restaurant. My particular favorite tablescapes were Alykhan Velji’s contemporary garden pavilion and Amanda Hamilton’s Clue/Harry Potter reference classic mansion house candle-light dinner table.
