Part of the table's circular top is folded upward so it rests flush against a vertical surface. This means that the Yeh Wall Table only requires two legs to stand up.
"The inspiration came from a cheerleader practice I passed by one day on my way to work," said Yeh. "Two students were rehearsing strength and balance."
"The male student was in sitting position up against a wall - but without a chair - and the female student was standing on his thighs," he explained. "The table mimics the position of the male student, back resting on the wall and two legs angled away from the wall for stability."
Powder-coated steel is used for the surface and thin tubular steel forms the legs.
Kenyon Yeh released the prototype for the side table in 2013, when it was called Kaki.
