Everyday Life Award

Virus is designed to cope with the needs of a changing society, for a community living in urban environments, for ambitious and young city dwellers that value the everlasting need for togetherness.

Dirk Wynants designed different versions of this picnic table based on an identical seating frame for two to five people. It's a fun way to fill a space with a mix of small to medium sized tables without compromising on uniformity. In addition, the compact design responds to the trend of smaller living spaces and offers a solution to use the product on balconies. For any type of meeting, informally or formally, there is an ideal virus picnic table.

The tables aren't big, but allow us to take a seat easily. Wynants designed four versions of it in different colors:

· 2-seater: tête-à-tête

· 3-seat: ménage à 3

· 4-seat: double date

· 5-seat: it's complicated
