Charlotte Friis Design Studio has developed a dining table that is radio controlled and battery-driven that ticks and tells time.

The table symbolizes the importance of time, and reminds the family about the balance of work and family. The different number of nuts at the joints between the legs and the tabletop, indicate the different times at day.

Well, at least it isn't a cuckoo clock.
