Product news: the circular sections of this console by French designer Philippine Lemaire for Ligne Roset can be curled round to make a dining table.

Philippine Lemaire incorporated metal ball joints underneath each sawn-oak circular top so the sections can be realigned.

Segments cut out of three of the four tops allow them to fit together and rotate around each other easily.

Each suface balances on two solid oak legs, which branch from a single stem coated in grey laquer at the joint.

The console was displayed at imm cologne last month, where a paperclip-like lamp and an asymmetric desk were also on show.

    Nice table, but is it really what Ligne Roset is all about this year? I mean a four-part table, three-part glass table, two-part desk, ten-part sofa cushions, etc. Looks like they pushed the “destructuring” concept to the maximum this year. Don’t get me wrong, I like this stuff but I’m afraid people will get bored over time.

    I showed the same idea at Dutch Design Week last year:

    I just don’t have Ligne Roset in the back.

    Just saw that she already had it in 2009, so we just came up with the same idea accidentally. Mine is based on a German TV character from the 1980s and conveyer belts.

    Concepts like this bring to mind a few old fashioned concepts like "stability" and "gravity center".

    This brings to mind the 1980s.

      That is because this is already a patent from the 1980s! Careful, careful designers.
