A project, developed after Marleen’s dissertation entitled ‘Being Forced Voluntarily’ on the subject of table manners. How to steer the user of my product? How to prevent people from walking away from the table whilst having dinner? Well, to solve this problem, she created this table with see-saw seating. If one leaves the table, the other diner ends up on the floor.
who says you’re too old for a see-saw?
now let the dinnertime trolling begin!
well let’s hope no one has to go to the bathroom, forgot drinks, or to bring something to the table.
