Transforming table "KENA"
Transforming coffee table
The inspiration was my wishes about some of this kind of table: very easily transforming when my friends urgently going to me for the party.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
"Kena" is a table transforming from the coffee to the dining table.
"Kena" table was specially designed for small rooms and apartments, where there is no space for a full dining table, it is the transformation of the function as a space-saving, and new opportunities of a small room. Here had been trying to make price less, and focused on the birch plywood. Feature of the "Kena" table design - a special transformer system, intuitive understanding and most importantly safe for hands, unlike some analogues.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The basic principle of the table Ken and unlike analogues is that short part legs and long part legs are fixedly joined and their axis of rotation is spaced from the edge by about 10 cm., So when we begin to translate into a high position at some point in the design legs abut on the tabletop and can not continue to rotate, and back also can not rotate as it pressed down by the weight of the table. This circuit creates a rigid structure.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started to design at Saint Petersburg in 2010 year. Here was a lot version of the table until We have been managed to get the right version of transforming table.

The research work on the creation of KENA table began with the identification of the needs of city residents living in small apartments. The main share of apartments in large cities - an apartment with an area of 30 to 60 square meters They are almost 70 percent. Residents of such apartments have high requirements for compactness and convenience of furniture. The most difficult was to create a design that would be visually intelligible. It was clear how it works and would be safe for the users' palms and fingers. The production uses the latest technology - coordinate milling of a plywood. The material is environmentally friendly - birch plywood, the quality of the material itself is designed for long years of use.
It had to be not expensive in cost, easy to assemble, gather safely, so that no one would hurt his hand. The table should be inexpensive to manufacture.
