Interactive, Segmented Tables by Michael Jantzen

View all 13 Photos

Functional furniture does not have to be static, and designer Michael Jantzen demonstrates that tables that are expected to have a flat, immobile surface can in fact be dynamic. Interactive, Segmented Tables is a collection of low tables, each of which consist of two vertical supports and a number of smaller segments in between. By loosening the knobs at the table ends, much like how a utility clamp functions, the middle segments can then be freely rotated into a number of configurations. The tables come in a variety of designs – some with square sections, while others have semicircular sections – and the dual coloration of the tables further accentuates the limitless possibilities of identities that the tables can assume. Thanks for sharing this with us, Michael.
