A new piece of pub furniture is both functional and entertaining.
Choosing the music you get to listen to in a pub can be a tricky proposition – especially if there are ancient jukeboxes or angry locals involved. Philips however, has come up with an ingenious way to listen to music without affecting anyone else around you.
As part of their new urban headphones campaign, “You Need To Hear This,” the company has installed tables that aren’t only covered in gorgeous typography, but also allow you to plug in your headphones. Once plugged in, you’ll be able to listen to music specifically chosen for the area of East London that you’re in.
Created by Bristol-based designer Ged Palmer, all the typography is hand-illustrated, and each table is made from three different woods, American oak, fumed oak, and maple.
