Transformer Furniture: From Table to Table Tennis

Why do we show so much transformer furniture? Ryan Vanderbilt puts it succinctly:

"We no longer work solely in the office, play in the game room, or eat in the dining room. Work, live and play have morphed together. There is a need for furniture to continue being beautiful, but to have multiple functions, and better serve the behaviors of todays world."

So they can be sitting there and think "this meeting is boring."


Put all their stuff away,


And have a rousing game.

Table&Tennis; was an idea to merge beautiful design, with a conference / dining table and build it to the official specs of a ping pong table. It's built so that it can transition simply and instantly between the different uses.

Built by Hong Kong Procurements. More information on Tumblr, found on Dvice.
