You likely memorized the periodic table in high school chemistry class, but you still might not know how frequently we encounter its elements in our daily lives. Seattle-based designer Keith Enevoldsen, who runs the website, created an interactive version of the educational tool to provide some context for how these substances are actually used, or where they're found.

Some elements, like gold, helium, and sodium, are no-brainers—but others, like krypton, antimony, and strontium, might surprise you. Get a preview of Enevoldsen’s unique table above, or visit his website for the full experience.
