The name of this buffet is formed by the combination of two words, KON (Kontakis) and TALOS (the mythical bronze giant Talos who protected Crete).
Its form and structure resembles that of a robot, Talos has often been referred to as the first robot in Greek mythology.
Nowadays, he lies on his back and is unable to protect society; KONTALOS is no longer on the battlefield.
He props up his head against one arm, remembering times gone by and feels an overwhelming sense of grief as he watches history repeating itself – a society attacked on all frontiers, and yet there is no robot to save it this time.
