Timetable Keeps Office Meetings Short And Sweet, Well Short At Least

Timetable Keeps Office Meetings Short And Sweet, Well Short At Least

By Andrew Liszewski

In an effort to improve the quality of their meetings, and to ensure they always ended on time, advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy’s London office commissioned ico design (in collaboration with Sidekick Studios) to create the Timetable. The table helps the participants better manage a meeting by making everyone aware of the passing time with a series of illuminated panels.

At the start of a meeting you twist a dial to set the desired amount of time, and as the meeting progresses the light-up panels, which each represent a tenth of the alloted time, will be switched off one by one. When all the panels are off, a polite voice will inform those in attendance that the meeting is now over, and while they don’t have to go home, they can’t stay here.
