Transformer sofa turns into dining table and seating for six

Designboom points to this clever bit of transformer design from Julia Kononenko of Kharkiv, Ukraine. It's a sofa that turns into a dining room table with seating for six. The designer writes:

In our apartments we are always in the confrontation with furniture for the living space. It is so important, that the Interior items possess little space, are multi-functional and small in size. I created a sofa for the living room, that can easily be transformed into a small dining-table with 6 padded stools. In terms of ergonomics it gives maximum comfort and convenience to the user. While transforming the sofa, the seat turns into six padded stools, and the backrest - into a countertop.

It is hard to tell how the legs work in table mode; it is probably sitting on a frame that is stored in the sofa, along with the bases for the stools. More images at Designboom.
