Commune: The Design/Concept
A lot of people have been asking us how we came up with the idea for Commune, so we will take a little time to share this information with you:
Before we even came up with the name, we had a lengthy discussion with Weng Chia & Jack about what it was they were trying to achieve with the event.
We were already really excited based on the fact that they were going to cook together. So for us, the idea of coming together and brainstorming to create next-level cuisine for people to eat was what we wanted to focus on.
We also wanted to create an environment where everyone sat very closely together to foster a sense of community and togetherness, so we completely changed El Faro’s seating arrangements for the event.
Then we came up with the Commune name, as it embodied everything that we wanted to convey about what we were doing.
Everything that people experienced over two nights was deliberate and something all of us thought about very, very carefully before putting it into motion.
And that is how “Commune” came to be. ️
