A couch table that easily can be converted to a standard dinner table for at least four people.
The main goal of this project was to create a table which could be used at different heights and for different purposes. Height adjustments would allow the users to be seated in different ergonomic positions. The affordance of being able to use the table for different purposes could be valuable for a compact living situation. Reports regarding our constantly changing living situations and the benefits of eating together as a family became the scientific backbone for my project. A personal interest in Japanese culture and objects was my creative inspiration. The table was built in scale 1:1 in Ash wood which is ideal for furniture because of its mechanical properties. The framework for the table can be adjusted so that the legs can extend upwards together with the table surface.
