Transformer Furniture: DB Fletcher's Expanding Tables


We can't guess what this costs, and its location on a large private yacht could not be less TreeHugger correct, but what a remarkable mechanism for making a dining table bigger. watch the ::quicktime movie and see how the pieces spread out and interlock. " It is a circular table which, when rotated at its outer perimeter, doubles its seating capacity, yet astonishingly remains truly circular. The expansion leaves are stored within the table and, in just four seconds, smoothly and quickly emerge upon rotation, rising and radially expanding outwards as the entire top is turned through 30˚. Existing tables can seat six persons when small, and twelve or more when expanded." Alas, it is teak, and it is on a monster yacht. If only such powers were used for good instead of evil. ::DB Fletcher Furniture Design via ::BoingBoing
