The cellphone silencer – is it coming to a table near you? –
The furniture company has announced Sittning — an upcoming, limited edition collection of dinnerware, including a placemat with a dedicated pocket for stowing away your smartphone during dinner.
Called “Logged out,” the placemat does not actually log you out, but it at least lets you hide your smartphone a little and actually have a normal conversation, you addict.
That said — as you can see in the image below — IKEA’s designers slyly made the placemat’s fabric thin enough so you can still see that Facebook notification. Take that as you will.Originally published by Mashable.com on July 23, 2015
