It can be hard for a person who works from home to shut off his or her business brain, so when it's time to focus on more personal matters, the Table-Table design is the perfect solution.

This piece of furniture looks like a simple, standard table, but it boasts a unique feature making it a must-have for home offices. The Table-Table features 'smart glass' that allows the transparent surface change opaque at the press of a button.

Created by Dutch design student Sabine Marcelis, the Table-Table sports a slim shelf underneath its glass surface that clears space to work on while effectively hiding papers and such when the day is done. By discouraging workaholic behavior, the Table-Table puts things in perspective, and allows people to focus on what matters. Stats for Transparent Transforming Desks Trending: Older & Average
