Whenever I see a good hybrid of a desk and a dining table – I always feel grateful. Work and entertaining are the two activities that are especially tricky to combine. and the Piano table, created by Bernotat & Co Design Studio for German brand Magazin, pulls it off very well. The table has two surfaces – the lower one is for work and storage of the work-related clutter, the upper surface is for dining. The transition between the two modes is seamless, just close the piano-like lid (hence the name) – and you’re done with work and ready for a party. The storage compartments with holes for media cords and cables are an especially nice touch.
