Xpand System Bamboo Table
Ingenious! Recently displayed at ICFF, this expanding table by Xpand System, an Austrian company, comes in seven styles of wood including renewable bamboo. Xpand has created a simple, functional design with the table, by having the latticed wood in the middle stretch apart accordian-like. Because of this, you can leave tableware on the table as you pull it out to expand, unlike regular expandable tables. Click to see a closeup of this table...
Here's an animated demo of the expansion.
