welcome to exchange: our ongoing conversation exploring the intersection of culture, food, design – and the ever changing ways we see the world.
 
we think the most captivating conversations happen when friends gather at the dinner table – however dinner table may be defined. the blend of unique perspectives, unencumbered ideas, and unaligned opinions make for a discussion that is both meandering and insightful – where we can simultaneously talk about everything without rushing to reach a conclusion.
 
and that’s what you’ll find here: dinner party-style dialogue focused on the things we find fascinating – and that we think you will too.
