Tabling a great idea doesn't sound like a smart thing to do, unless of course you're the University of Maryland grad behind Holland Design Studio, and you're talking about making actual tables. Armed with a hometown degree in 3D design, she creates modern, geometric homewares that'll, ironically, de-square your crib:

It's part of her series on bridges, in which she notes that bridges are "grandiose architectural structures that transport you from point A to B", and in the most unfortunate cases, sea.
