Rising Table

Now *that* is a folding table! Architectural designer Robert Van Embricqs created this clever piece called Rising Table, which is made from a single piece of wood: Link - via Tuvie

Not functional? You're not thinking straight...this is incredible...I would buy this in a heartbeat! I wish this what what we had as an economical solution in stores everywhere. How clever and perfect! This is the real futuristic lifestyle comes in. Cool than sci fi movies predicted!

I think it is beautiful and a piece of plexiglass would solve any functionality issues while keeping it free from damage and still easy to store. i also think that using the center as an inlaid center piece would be awesome. think about it filled with autumn leave, pumpkins and some small lights. or place some birch or willow branches strategically through the slots and string with lights and freeze dried flowers (orchids for instance) for an amazing center piece that is sure to wow yet simple to do.

I think you could probably get creative with the dip in the middle and use it as a sort of storage space while the table is "up". I'm sure you could put a bowl in there as a catch-all for keys, phone, wallet etc, or maybe a pot plant, or remote control storage...

The table can be functional. While there is the big dip in the middle and the holes, a person could put a piece of plate glass on the top to solve the issue. You can still see the design of the table through the glass and have the functionality of a normal table.

Yes, it's pretty cool, but not functional.
The funny thing about saying it's made from a single piece of wood is that you could say that about anything piece or pieces of furniture made from the same tree. After all, the "single piece of wood" did get sawn at some point - unless those are really flexible legs.

Neat piece of art, but a stupid piece of furniture. It has a big dip in the middle and lots of thin holes everywhere else. You have to lay another tabletop on top of this just so you can put stuff on it.
