Diana Halbeisen's Table Without Tabletop

Pin it button big

Stripped bare. Diana Halbeisen's Table Without Tabletop makes a table out of as little means possible...

A discussion about the functions of a table. What tasks does a table fulfil? It serves, for instance, as a surface on which dishes are placed; it separates the food from the floor and allows objects to be within gripping distance when seated etc. Can these activities be performed without the familiar flat surface?

It looks like the "prongs" can be folded down when the table's not in use, making the concept *possibly* *somewhat* practical for small-space dwellers. Maybe.
