Occupy protesters may want to consider furnishing their camps with the 'In Case of Riot' coffee table. The coffee table is designed with a built-in riot shield in case protests turn ugly.

The In Case of Riot coffee table was designed by the New York-based design duo Max Arlestig and Maximilian Gebhardt. The table itself is made of metal tubing and actually looks pretty captivating with the shield inserted. The shield itself is a standard plastic riot shield that looks as tough as any other. With the amount of riots happening around the world, the designers may want to consider a limited production run of this protective table. You never know when you're going to be facing an angry protester or police officer after all.
