Ever since our post about the ostrich pillow, we figured it’s time to have more fun (and naps) at the office.
Check out this conference table! Chairs are suspended on a steel frame! So yes, the picture says it all: Each chair is suspended by stainless steel cables.
Although the frame can support intense swinging, passionate swingers beware — too much back and forth can result in crashing into the table.
According to BloombergBusinessweek, the London-based firm Duffy London threw away notions about practicality for meetings and decided to focus on fun in the office instead.
Designer Chris Duffy told the publication, “When you’re on a swing at a formal table, there’s something quite hard for your brain to get, and it makes you smile. It really is fun.”
Fun indeed! Duffy London has sold a handful of tables in Europe (by the way, each table costs approximately $11,200) and has gotten requests from startups for custom-made orders. He pointed out in the piece, “Some companies want each part in different shades of green.”
