DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Air transformable table

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee table/dinning table

INSPIRATION:
My best friend´s small, small apartment.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It´s a coffee table, which through a simple couple of steps (just opening the pipes out through rotation) can be turned into a full dinning room table for 6 or 8 chairs. The design is light modern and ideal for small spaces where every extra square centimeter counts. From a small coffee table, we gat a full dinning table for up to 8 chairs without sacrificing design. Both positions look very modern and elegant.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The design basically consists of two round bent pipes and three wooden boards. When in the cofffee table position, the pipes are in a intertwined position. When we rotate the pipes out, the same legs are now in a different position turning the coffee table into a dinning table. To prevent the wooden boards from bending, a metalic frame is necessary to keep them rigid. It only takes seconds to make the transformation from one table to the other.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2014 in Montevideo and finished in February 2014 in Montevideo.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

Finger joint wooden boards, metalic frame and round bent pipes

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I needed something light, economic and visually sexy. I had to resort to an exhausted research on coffee tables that could transform into dining tables, study processing systems and give a personal adaptation based on my research. As with all my work, I tried to avoid heavy and complex mechanical fittings for these transformations, and this case is no exception.

NAME:
M3 Claudio Sibille

PROFILE:
M3 focuses its work on the result of the real estate trends , while they may be obvious , it is not particularly exploited a niche . The homes tend to be getting smaller while still increasing the square footage value. And herein lies the dilemma of how to furnish an environment of reduced dimensions without losing the typical elements that every home needs for its quality of daily life . Why not having everything a big living room has if it’s within our reach without losing style and design, and further more, without sacrificing precious space. Well, M3 is all about multi functionality and space saving. With the help of designer Claudio Sibille, and other major designers soon to be part of our team, we are committed to provide the consumer with a new way of thinking furniture in terms of functionality and design to ensure that no matter how tiny a space is, we can still preserve the same quality of life we may have in larger apartments. Imagine a two seat sofa that can be transformed into the same piece plus two more lounge chairs for visitors, a couple of chairs popping up surprisingly out of the blue from a storing drawer cabinet, a small cabinet with drawers that can easily be transformed into a full transportable desk with a chair included within a blink of a eye, or a chair that can be transformed into a bed or in two extra banks without losing the original chair for unexpected guests . Well, this is what we do, this is our mission.
