Hide Your Piano In Your Dining Table

In yet an other great example of combining functions to take up less space, Georg Bohle builds a piano into a dining table. For that matter, you can have music while you dine. "The pianotable offers a dinner with the accompaniment of a piano. The piano player takes a seat at the dining table."

Beautifully made, but perhaps a bit expensive at 4,500 euros. More information at Reluct., via The Coolist

Of course, the integration of pianos and other functions isn't new; we have previously shown Charles Hess's 1866 US Patent 56,413 for an "Improved Combined Piano, Couch and Bureau" ,shown in Transformer Furniture: Nothing New Under the Sun
