Rumor Maker

How does rumor unfurl? How does it snowball into a different tale? What occasion facilitates this exchange? Dinner becomes an excuse. New gossip ensues, collects the residues. Rumor rescues!

Rumor Maker not only hosts and witnesses the passing of rumors but also embodies it by its modular nature. Served at a gathering with close friends, the plates radiate, spread out and converge as new combinations emerge. Everyone brings different stories to the table: the starting point and the ending point are vastly different. Just like the plates, one can add, take, shift, and shape their own story. Inspired by the culture of meze—where every meal is shared—the exchange is not that of food but of the stories. Rumor Maker offers endless possibilities of combination, just like the flourishing nature of rumors.
