CHAO 01

Chao 01 is a table with a lighting designed to reflect the human activities by changing its configuration and light atmosphere. The outcome of Chao 01 is the result of observing how people interact with table and light. Through configuring the tabletop, the user can change the lighting atmosphere simultaneously. While the user works alone, the table can be configured into a smaller table equipped with a spot light providing illumination. When the users work in group, the extra tabletop can be pulled out to form a bigger surface area for working and the light are rise up automatically to provide even illumination.
