Communal dining, The Kawa Table

John Lore of Live Edge Design and Yves St Hilaire of Sticks+Stones  have joined forces to create an exceptional table for the communal dining movement. A perfect fusion of wood, concrete and metal; The Kawa Table.

The word 'Kawa' means river in Japanese.

Solid slabs of Western Maple are parted by a river of concrete and mounted on a thoughtful steel base. Designed for seated diners or standing conversationalists. Friends or strangers will come together and the conversation will flow.


“Sharing a meal is one of the oldest and most meaningful rituals known to human kind. It is the central experience to nearly every celebration and rite of passage...In a world where we increasingly live alone, eat alone and even communicate alone, sometimes it is just comforting to be alone beside another human.”                          John Lore, Owner and President,
