A key question that is imbued in all that we do is this: “what does it mean to be human”? We don’t have the answer, but what we do share is a passion for asking philosophical questions. The journey is very much the destination, and it’s a process we take it seriously – we dip well below the surface and take people to places they might otherwise fear treading.

In 2018, we hosted Transformation. A dinner. It was an intimate dining experience curated and facilitated by us with a small group of strangers. What we learned is that we have a unique ability to guide people through an experience, creating a safe space to share and be vulnerable.

Over the course of the dinner, there were tears, confessions and open dialogue – people entered as strangers but left as close friends. The emotive experience of our brand deeply affected our guests, unearthing the power of meaningful conversation and its ability to change hearts and minds.
