The Go Slow restaurant is an interactive installation we made for a Droog presentation in Milan. All the elements of the restaurant, from entering, waiting and seating, laying the table as well as preparing and serving the food, were ritualised. The typographic signs of the slogans: eat slowly, drink slowly etc. were made by graphic designer Hansje van Halem. Marije Vogelzang designed the menu and instructed the elderly waiters and waitresses on producing and serving the different courses with a lot of attention and patience. Our ‘table cloths’ were made out of candle wax in which the warm bowls made their own little holes to stay upright. After a couple of meals the table cloth candle wax could be melted and poured over the table tops again. Inserted in the table cloth were little candle lights.
