Perhaps you'd like to play an early April Fool's prank. Or maybe you'd like to make your meals a little more fun. We've found the perfect solution: optical illusion place mats.
These funky optical illusion place mats from Japanese design company A.P. Works give the illusion that the lines have sunken under the weight of the plate or dining utensils. An unsuspecting dinner guest may have to do a double take or walk away thinking they've had a bit too much to drink.
A.P. Work'soptical illusion place mats are currently a prototype but it'd be nice to have them on the market soon. Follow the designer on social media to keep tabs on when they become available for purchase.
