JCPCDR Architecture has designed an oak table suspended from the ceiling to save on space, using a mechanism that resembles seat belts.
The idea for Flying Table came from a Parisian office refurbishment project. The studio complement the spaces it designs with custom furniture, which led them to explore a more flexible and efficient use of valuable floor space.
Flying Table allows a meeting room or desk to quickly transform into a photo studio, a yoga class, a lounge or living room.
Its mechanism is made possible by several techniques, inspired by everyday objects: detachable seat belt straps, electric curtain motors, integrated lighting and folding legs.
These details, and remote control transmitters, are hidden in a rustic-looking tray with sleek, contemporary lines.
As a desk, dining table, meeting table or coffee table, this piece of furniture adapts itself to several uses or spaces.
