around / multifunctional table


The multifunctional table „around“ gives its user the opportunity to accomplish numerous activities which includes to sit on a table and to have the serviceable object close by. Its one way to react on rising rents and a lack of housing and office space. “around” brings different activities in one room, witch are normally even in different buildings.
Around the corpus rotates a foam band witch works like a roller blind because of the inlayed lamellas.
Depending on the position of the band cut outs are opening or closing different boxes inside the table. The boxes it self are containing different accessories for the different activities.
