How do we move furniture into the 21st century? One way is to create new interactions and meanings with it as Studio Hanna and Seo have done with the Ripple Effect Tea Table.

When a new item is set on the table, it creates a ripple effect across the entire table. Perhaps more interesting than than the physical effect, is the symbolism involved. Any action at one point on the table creates an effect which expands to the rest of the table. This is much like life, as our actions send out ripples to the entire world (much like the butterfly effect). Beautiful!

What type of ripples am I making? What type of ripples are you making?
