Sarah Dezember and Wenhan Zhang, architecture and design students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, designed this space-saving "Twins Table." It won the Grand Prize for Formica's 2022 FORM Student Innovation Competition.
"Those living in big cities often have smaller spaces that still must serve an ever-changing and ever-growing number of needs. The Twins Table was created to provide flexible, multipurpose furniture that can seamlessly transition between functions."
"It can be used in four different ways and in its standard configuration, one side of the round table seats two people comfortably. When completely closed, it can be stored away or used as decoration. Twins Table also comes in a variety of Formica Laminate woodgrains, colors and patterns, offering a broad range of design options."
I believe these are just renders, and I'd like to see some physical models or further iteration of the support elements, but these were the only images available.
