Force Feeding: Seesaw Table Only Seats Dinners for Two

Want to eat alone? Well, too bad – this is not designed to let you do that. If there is a line in design between facilitating and forcing users, well, this certainly crosses it.

Created by dutch design student Marleen Jansen, there is just no getting around dual dining – if someone stands up to leave, the other person has to as well … or drops to the ground if they fail to follow.

Perhaps, like the original seesaws for children, there is a lesson in all of this about being polite, but etiquette aside, it would simply be fun to watch how people interact with such a thing in public, too.
