Don't Play With Your Food - Play With The Table! Marbelous by Ontwerp
The talented duo of Nathan Wierink and Tineke Beunders - both who graduated cum laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2008, are the designers behind Ontwerpduo, a design studio in the Netherlands.
One of their wonderfully whimsical pieces of work is Marbelous. A maple wood table whose surface and legs are routed to hold steel marbles, turning the piece of furniture into an interactive game.
There's even a built-in place for the marbles and caddy to sit:
Dimensions: 200cm x 90 cm x 76cm
Design: Tineke Beunders
