A Table With No Top

No this table isn’t half-assed. It’s just a paradigm shift in what we normally think a table should look like – some legs supporting a flat surface. Design Diana Halbeisen wanted to experiment with different forms. She thought about what a dinner table is used for, how things are placed, etc. Her design is a series of metal rods with bent circles to hold various dinner and flatware. Not exactly flexible in its functionality but I’m sure it would double for a great coat rack when not in use. And for some reason I feel like it would produce some nice acoustics if struck just right with a dinner fork.
