Ged Palmer And Philips Give Pub Tables A MAJOR Upgrade

Last year Philips launched their Citiscape headphones line and they partnered with Bristol based designer Ged Palmer for a unique campaign to help highlight them.  The campaign was called “You Need To Hear This” and it combined Philips urban headphones with some beautifully crafted tables at pubs throughout various locations in London.
