Designed by Oxfordshire based designer Jay Watson, the ‘Linger A Little Longer’ table is a deceptively understated design with a cheeky and dynamic twist.
Coated in a thermochromic finish, the table and benches respond to the heat of any warm crockery or body part placed on it. The result is an ephemeral ‘watermark’ which exposes the natural wood surface normally veiled by the black coating.
Thermochromic furniture is an innovative kind of furniture infused with a special dye that changes color when it's temperature changes.
Therefore if you sit down on the bench for a few minutes and the heat from your body reaches the die, the spot where you're touching the bench will change color. Likewise, if you put your palm down on the table it will leave a hand print in the same color.
The mark fades later as the temperature returns to normal and the dye reverts to its previous state.
