A garden where there is nothing to eat is unimaginable, so our garden is a place where every gesture has a meaning and where beauty, harmony, and color exhilarate the senses and satisfy hunger. Flowers and vegetables come together, all beautiful and all edible, so there's no need to think about whether a blossom is supposed to be eaten or just admired. In the traditional Italian garden, flowers were cultivated along with the vegetables, so they could be collected and brought fresh to adorn the table when they day's vegetables were brought in to serve to guests. Hence the inspiration for the design of 'Hortus in tabula', a table that brings to mind the very purpose of the garden, where the beautiful and the appetizing blend together amongst fruit and flowers always at our fingertips, where the table serves as the proliferator of perpetual production, like an eternal Spring.
