Like a Swiss Army knife, transformer D*Table hides 8 tables in 1

Let's admit it: rectilinear tables get pretty boring after a while (or round, oval, and so on). Running along with their previous idea of a house that literally and mechanically transforms in response to its environment, London-based company D*Haus is crowdfunding their latest transformer design, a low table that can morph into eight different configurations.

Dubbing it a "Swiss Army knife of a table," the D*Table is designed to be as versatile as possible, with various nooks and crannies to hold books, plants, drinks and knick-knacks. The four different orthogonal pieces are connected to each other by removable hinges, allowing it to fold into various forms, depending on the needs of the moment.

Seeming very much like a three-dimensional puzzle, the D*Table is based on a mathematical game worked out by Henry Ernest Dudeney, which turns

[..] a perfect square into a perfect equilateral triangle by dissecting the square in to 4 distinct shapes, these shapes can be rearranged to form the triangle. The D*Table utilises this formula by combining the mathematics and movement to create a functional adaptable low table. [..] Long sweeping movements create a sense of energy in the table that invites the user to interact with it.

Indeed, this flexible table would make any living room a little less static, and it comes in three flavours of colour -- white, pastel, and bright primaries that would make Gerrit Rietveld proud. Plus, it will be made out of sustainably sourced woods, and non-toxic finishes.
