Dinner in the Sky in Brussels chose Figgjo for their ten year anniversary celebration. Ten Michelin chefs served delicious dishes on ten high-flying cranes at the famous Atomium landmark in the EU capital.
For Figgjo – which is celebrating the company’s 75th anniversary this year – the task was to supply custom decorated plates from the Figgjo Base series to this fresh, youthful celebration. The event took place in the first week of June, and was a gastronomic experience for a total of 220 guests divided between ten tables hanging from ten cranes. “It was a unique and special experience to sit at a table hanging 50 metres up in the air, a tablecloth covered with blue sky and clouds, and to eat from our very own gold-decorated plates with gold cutlery,” says incoming CEO Anne Kristine Rugland.
Export manager Helene Seglem and Rugland also attended the Dinner in the Sky anniversary event – and experienced the concept that offers dinners served high in the air and which over ten years has spread to 55 major cities across the world. “It was extra fun that they took the celebration to new heights with ten tables up in the air, where ten chefs – all awarded Michelin stars – prepared the food.” The anniversary was celebrated over five days.
During the first week of June there were three daily services, with a lunch and two dinner courses per day/evening. “Together with Debecker, Figgjo’s distributor in Belgium, Figgjo also supplied plates to Dinner in the Sky last year. The fact that we were once again chosen as a supplier, confirms that Figgjo is regarded as a strong brand and supplies custom decor solutions that fit the concept. We are proud to be a part of this high-flying culinary experience,” says Helene Seglem.
