Folding Low Table
The design concept was furniture, which operates like a toy and transforms like a robot.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The question ‘What is this for?’ is the core of this product, giving customers pleasure to see this prism-like triangle pillar turning into a totally new table just like the film Transformers.
