I’m really impressed with ingenuity of this extendable table by French designer Julien Vidame. The tabletop is comprised of small panels. When put together vertically, they create a smaller surface, and in their flat position, they double the table’s capacity. The transition between these two modes are made via a clever metal mechanism, hidden underneath the tabletop. Thanks to this mechanism, the piece grows from 31 to 62 inches. The extendable table is a concept at this point. I do hope to see the piece produced.

The table is indeed unique but while it may be disposable, I think the designer meant for it to be Expandable not expendable.

Think that should be “extendable” ie can be extended, rather than expendable ie can be got rid of easily.

Thanks for pointing out the error, guys! Appreciate it.
