A new design helps demonstrate that meals are something you share with others with a table that flips if someone gets up.

Dutch designer Marleen Jansen created this see-saw table, which is a fun piece of furniture that has the potential to mix play with dining and also highlights meal-time etiquette. Her project, ‘De tafelwip’, was developed following a dissertation on table manners and this reinvention of the iconic playground toy encourages diners to remain seated until the other person has finished, otherwise they could end up on the floor.
