Fan Table by Mauricio Affonso
by Harry / April 17, 2012
From @MauricioAffonso, a table that can quickly transform into an array of different shapes, and sizes, to suit context or use.




Created from more than 400 slats the table top can freely expand, contract and revolve with an effortless fan like movement of the hand.

Says Affonso, "The Fan Table explores the role of tables as the infrastructure for social interaction."

"Furniture can be quite limited sometimes, I wanted to move away from the table as a static object and create a self-transforming table."
