OTIS ARMADA

SPRING FEAST 2014
re-cap

A curated and knowledgeable lifestyle has gained attention and appreciation in recent years.
From the food, wine or coffee we consume, to where our garments come from and how they are made.

Melbourne-based Otis Armada is an intriguing new creative dining experience and concept.
A Pop-Up dining experience of conscious ingredients and environment, an experience for all the senses. In the final days of Spring, Otis Armada hosted a feast celebrating the most affable aspects of both childhood and adulthood. ChampFam & Photographer Ben Clement made it down to the Saturday lunch sitting to capture a triumphant mess as it unfolded.  Otis Armada is a seasonal event which champions a soup of food, art, music and wine.

For their spring feast, OA featured guest chef Clayton Wells, booze purveyor Ned Brooks, art and installations by Lucky Prawn, films by
Coco and Maximilian and tuneful selections by the likes of Andras Fox, Simon TK and Zach PM. Before the Australian summer is out,
Otis Armada will be hosting an outdoor feast in Melbourne this summer before honing in on a Tokyo event in May 2015.

“Naivety can be quite an exciting and profound thing. Sometimes the less we know the more likely we are to give in to our inhibitions. The whimsical, the outrageous and the unexpected rise to the surface when we draw outside the lines. Otis Armada sees mess as a bi-product of any good feast, so forgo your dainty dispositions. This is all about celebrating the precious and bizarre moments that occur when friends feast together.” Otis Armada
