Boyle Street Community Table
55-person capacity table made of Brazilian teak
This 22-metre-long community table was commissioned by the Edmonton Arts Council as part of the Boyle Renaissance Project.
The design is continuous so that it places occupants face to face and side to side. The transitional seating moves from a standard table height that seats 24 people comfortably, to a bar height table with two sizes of seating – couples and families – that sit 16 people, and finally a standing section within the piece, one that allows you to converse or read a book with the option of standing.
In the end, the Community Table is not just a place to sit, but also a new visually exciting and experiential piece that promotes togetherness at a new public level; one that is best suited to a rejuvenated community such as Boyle Street.
