This Folding Bamboo Table Will Instantly Elevate Your Living Room

There was a time when the search for flat, storable furniture began and ended with a certain Swedish retailer. Thankfully, Dutch designer Robert Van Embricqs has spared you several gruelling hours with a wordless instruction manual by creating the Rising Table.


A latticework of bamboo beams falls to the floor when the table’s surface is lifted, automatically forming legs, as well as a channel on top for holding fruit or other centrepieces.


The result is at once poetic, organic, and functional, while subverting traditional furniture design.
