How in the world can a dinner table be a gadget? We didn’t know either until we stumbled across a designer we wish we would have found much sooner named Jay Watson. Jay Watson Design created a solid European Oak table and chair set that actually creates a level of interaction with the person sitting at it. You can tell from the picture that they were actually able to use a Thermochromic finish on the table which allows it to react to heat.
The pictures show it reacting to just the heat of your hands but the other pictures below show that even a hot cup of coffee or even a bowl of hot soup should do it. Not only does it create an ever changing (but temporary) design to your table, it can actually make things kind of fun. Imagine hosting a party and having everybody sitting around this table and chairs. As the hot appetizers are placed on the table and moved around, people will slowly begin to realize the color of the table is changing. Their first reaction will be horror because they will have thought they themselves ruined the finish but after you show them, the fun would begin. People talk about some furniture being conversation pieces but this is a piece people will actually interact with as the thermochromic table changes and modifies. I’m not going to get into the details but imagine the fun you and the wife could have on this thing (assuming you are both in shape, otherwise it could be fairly disturbing when you get up).
The only downside we found to this table and chair set was actually a big one. $3,000 is the price tag and that is mostly because you are getting a quality product made in the UK. Gadgets 4 Guys wouldn’t get behind this if it had been made by the French, duh. While it is an insane price tag, you have to remember that is this is much better than the expensive paintings you wish adorned your walls. People will be floored with they see the effect of the Thermochromic finish. Be sure to check out the site via the link below!
