Transformer Furniture: Test Collective's Coffee Table/ Sk8tr Ramp


We do love multifunctional furniture, but usually the functions are prosaic and practical. Not at the Test Collective. which has produced a coffee table that you can take outside (or I suppose leave inside) and use as a sk8tr ramp. It is made from bamboo, with steel edges to grind your board on. No doubt it will shortly have some colourful gouges and scratching to enliven it.

Piotr describes the function of the skateboard table/ramp.

Chris Adamick and Piotr Woronkowicz have also produced bamboo decks with architectural forms etched in.

Harry Wakefield at Mocoloco thought it was pretty cool too, and took better photographs. Test Collective
