We're used to seeing a table as this stationary and unanimated piece of furniture which its main purpose is just to hold books or pieces of decorations in the room. The table above on the other hand would seem to invite you to interact and play with it as it is able to move in such an amusing way.
Designed by Tom Cecil the table, which is called the Rotating Squares Table, can be opened up to 1.4 times its size. It is divided into 16 smaller square units which when one unit is rotated, also affects and rotates the other smaller square units as well, creating sort of an animated visual dance that you would find amusing.
The table is made from painted birch plywood. Its closed dimensions are 600 mm x 600 mm x 320 mm and its opened dimensions are 848 mm x 848 mm x 320 mm.
