Smart table / Table for small apartments

Smart table

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

From the user perspective, Smart table optimizes the whole procedure of having dinner together as a family: food preparation, cooking, serving and cleaning. It combines a brand-new lifting dishwasher and a convenient recycling system. All the family members can help to clean the table after the meal. The kitchen counter and dinner table have been incorporated in one design, i.e. the space is used more effectively and the cooking and eating activities can be more interactive. Smart table is designed for the young generation who want to enjoy high-quality living in small apartments.

SMART TABLE is a product that it crosses the confines of 'only for micro environments' usage, making it a desirable product for any type of user. It is cleverly thought-through, including most needs within a kitchen, all completely integrated and finally disappearing into a clean, simple table. The aesthetics are also simple, with straight lines that are more than just style and address functionality, like a machine.
