Transformer Furniture: Piccolo Table and Bench by Nobodyandco

At first glance, the Piccolo Grande by nobodyandco may just look like classic outdoor furniture, but grab one end and pull, and watch what happens: by simply sliding the structure, the staves separate and double in length, transforming a table for two into a table for four, and intimate seating for a date into a dinner party. We aren't crazy about the use of teak as the wood of choice, but we're suckers for sleek multi-functional, space-saving furniture like this. The designer, whose groovy bookcase/chair combo was also featured on TreeHugger, notes that it will be available starting in September 2007. ::nobodyandco via ::Crib Candy
