As a kid my biggest fear at the dinner table – aside from choking – was probably spilling. Oh the scorn of a parental figure after one too many spills – it really can be quite damaging to a kid’s psyche.
But not with the Underfull Tablecloth. Spill on it and an image is revealed. Spill more and more of that image is revealed. So what was once a negative experience quickly becomes a positive one. Its designer, Kristine Bjaadal, also sees the Underfull Tablecloth as a sort of story teller. Over time the cloth gets spilled on by different liquids and tells a story, one that dining guests can reminiscent about for years to come.
Right now it’s a concept only, but I think it’s fair to say that we, as in the entire Webosphere would like to see this thing on a a store shelf.
