When I was a kid, toys that transform, fold, slide in and out to form a shape from another shape really excites me that is why when I saw this table, how simple it may look, really caught my attention. It's a semi-circular wood and metal table with arching patterns on its top, nothing really special, but lo and behold it transforms to become one full circular table. This table, designed by Isariya Boon, calls this the "Rotension Table".
Because of its ability to change its form, this table can be used in a number of ways. Like other transforming and convertible furniture, although not as complex as some, it somehow saves space since it can replace multiple furniture at once.
It starts out as a semi-circular table which you can place against a wall as a console or a counter of some sort. Then, with a hinge on the center of the semi-circle, the arched pattern of the table top slides and separates from each other, expanding the table top area. From a semi-circular top, it can change into three-quarters and then to a full circle.
As a designer, I can think of many ways of positioning this table in a room. For example when in three-quarters, it can be placed on a corner where two wall planes meet. Although the holes it produces as you slide it to a full circle is not really practical to be used like any table, it can be used as a podium for any medium to large decorations and it would definitely accentuate the pieces because of its unique look.
One other thing I admire about this table is the technicality that was done to be able to make its parts slide in and out of itself. It may look so simple but the sliding parts were done so carefully to make it slide really smoothly. It somehow reminds me of the Fletcher Table because of the transforming ability, although simple, it still caught my interest.
