You Need To Hear This

May 2015 | | no comments

As part of their new urban headphones campaign, ‘You Need To Hear This,” Philips unveiled tables you need to hear. Pub goers across east London got a chance to listen to trending music curated specifically for the neighborhood they were in just by plugging their headphones into bespoke tables and to play mobile casino.

Each table featured hand illustrated typography and iconography inspired by its neighborhood – all prompting people to plug their headphones directly into the table (Philips headphones were provided by the bar). The surfaces were entirely handmade using three types of wood: American oak, fumed oak and maple and each used a range of techniques including marquetry, laser etching, wood burning and hand distressing.
