The iTable: Love It or Leave It?

I'll admit it, slapping "i" in front of anything is a surefire way to incite my curiosity. Swiss company Willisau (beware, the website's in German) is getting in on the i-action with the iTable, which is among the cutting-edge design offerings at this year's IMM Cologne, an international design fair.

IMM features mostly modern furniture, but Willisau seems to recognize that there's nothing more modern than integrating your tech into your home in a beautiful way.

The table itself is pretty hot — sleek, white-lacquered MDF with the feeling of a Parsons table. However, it plays music and recharges itself from the table. . . . just like any other iPod dock. The table is not yet for sale, and I suspect its pricing would affect how I feel about something that may be a glorified iPod dock.

What do you guys think?. . . Would you put this in your home?

I'm actually partial to the Milk table, as seen in Uncrate's geek furniture section. :) It's designed by Søren Kjær and it's beautimous.

i think a little music in the background is nice, but the dinner is the best time to have those memorable conversations.

That's for a specific style of room, I don't think it would work everywhere.

I love it, it's a gorgeous table that i'd never put in my home, but for an office? perfect!

I prefer music not coming from my table...I prefer conversation around the table. Isn't that what eating at a table is for? Dinner parties...families...conversing? I'm all for returning to the art of conversation.

I think it's good because it's sleek, but for me, it's too simple. x3 And because it's an iTable (stares at the 'i'), it probably will mean it will sell for a higher price than I would like to buy it for. So, if it's a high price and simple, I wouldn't want to buy it. xD But! I like the idea!
