The Best Map Ever Made of America's Racial Segregation Last year, a pair of researchers from Duke University published a report with a bold title: “The End of the Segregated Century.” U.S. cities, the authors concluded, were less segregated in 2012 than they had been at any point since 1910.

Created by and for Duffy London, four slim posts support this table and the rails from which each suspended seat freely swings. The aesthetic manages to be smooth and professional but also industrial and fun, all angles and lines, white and wood, but beneath (or beyond) that overt class the functionality of a backyard swingset.
