Sharp edges + unforgiving metal = $10 for the ledge + $10 million for the lawsuits.
thanks for the comment mark - those edges are pretty well radiused, and the edges filed. i can't imagine anyone would hurt themselves on the lunch ledge but it is something to think about moving forward. thanks for following pop up lunch.
just wanted to let you know that I recently tweeted about Pop Up Lunch (at http://twitter.com/puremath) . . . Also, I replied to your most recent tweet ("Not very good at twitter") on my Twitter page.One suggestion for your blog: Post a blog entry specifically informing your readership about your Twitter page because someone might overlook the Twitter sidebar.
Not sure how this ledge attaches to the pole but I'm curious. Also I agree with Mark above about the look of unforgiving metal & sharp edges, regardless of radiuses; perception is everything. A little more tweaking(playful curves perhaps) the design could make it more fun, attractive & inviting. Love the pentagon shape decoration: makes it intriguing. Fabulous concept for building out-of-the-office community & social interaction, relationships .etc. Your idea is more than a product with potential to change /improve society.Congratulations for your depth of thought: most people, includingdesigners, know what people want, few know know what they need. Take it from me as an industrial design, family/marriage counselor at times, teacher as well.Please keep up with good work & don't EVER abandon the focus on real people needs!!
