Aziz Ansari said it best: the idea of marriage is insane. Two people who enjoy hanging out decide they’re only going to hang out with each other until they die, and they go around wearing metal circles on their fingers so everyone else is aware of the arrangement.

In the spirit of keeping oneself tethered to another human being, graduates of the Tunghai University school of design in Taiwan created the “Napkin Table,” a portable table you can carry around like a tote purse and tie around one other’s necks like bibs.
