TAEABLE / Design Talent


Mobile phones and attached social media are constantly attacking our brain, speeding up the pace of life. Our goal is to find a moment where one can withdraw him/her-self from the naughty world to enjoy life without social media. For us, dining should be that moment that you can enjoy the meal, appreciating the taste of wonderful food. TAE is a dining table with drawers which provide both storage and wireless charging function. The design is to suggesting users put their phones inside the drawer while having a meal, to mentally disconnected with social media.
