Dining Table by Michael Beitz Swells Like Your Stomach

The kitchen table is the object responsible for presenting more food to your fattening midsection, so it's amusing to see that the Dining Table by Michael Beitz has gained a little sympathy. The long eating surface takes on an unusually sinuous form with an incredibly exaggerated surge in the center.

This peculiar project breaks the first rule people follow when attempting to design a table, for the flat horizontal plane is generally a must. However, the clever creation is able still to subtly satisfy this criteria by providing level ledges a both heads of the table.

For a piece of furniture that could easily be a grand banquet or buffet with the amount of wood sculpted, finished and assembled, the Dining Table by Michael Beitz refuses to hold many plates and bowls and even encourages antisocial eating.
