Japanese product design studio A.P. Works has an idea for a placemat that will make it seem like your food and dinnerware are warping spacetime itself, because the placemats’ lines curve right where the spoon, fork and plate should be.

It would be a lot cooler if the placemats actually curved around objects placed on them. Still, it’s amazing how a simple trick can be so convincing.
