When I was ‘corporate’, to combat long and drawn out meetings bosses would implement the ‘standing meeting’. In short, employees were required to physically stand during the meeting which in turn would force them to get down to brass tacks.
The TimeTable incorporates a similar philosophy, but instead of requiring workers to stand a set of LED lights built-in to the translucent surface of the table countdown indicating how much time is left for them to present. Once the total meeting time has transpired a record voice is played to let them know their time has expired.
The TimeTable is currently a design only, but they’ve got a working prototype up and running at the “The Cole” building at Wieden and Kennedy London.
