LAILA GOHAR X HAY: SOBREMESA COLLECTION
New York-based artist Laila Gohar has teamed up with HAY to create a collection of tableware and kitchen accessories designed to celebrate the joys of hosting – from sourcing ingredients, to cooking, setting the table, and finally sitting down and enjoying the people around the table. She has named her collection ‘Sobremesa’, which is the Spanish tradition of “relaxing and enjoying idle moments and each other’s company at the end of the meal.”
