Don't play with your food--play with your table
The Marbelous dinner-table design bridges the gap between the world of adults and the world of children. Grooves cut into the table shuttle marbles from the tabletop down to the feet.
What a sweet looking dinner table. Grooves cut into the table serve as channels for marbles to roll around in. A marble can roll from the tabletop, down the spiral legs, through the supports, and all the way into a reservoir at the base. Cool.
Netherlands-based designer Tineke Beunders created the Marbelous table, perhaps in an effort to bridge the gap between adults and children. The designer has this to say about it:
"The world of adults' furniture and the world [of] children's toys don't seem to belong together.
From my childhood, I remember it was always [exciting] to combine these two."
Seems to me, the designer hit the nail on the head here. The Marbelous table finally brings the kids' table to the world of grown-ups.
