Transformable tables have reached the next step in their evolution thanks to a new design made by French furniture brand Boulon Blanc. Driven by a desire to transform the classic X-based mechanism that is found in most transformable tables, the team of designers and engineers created a new system from scratch. Inspired by aeronautics and watchmaking, the new table features a blend technical innovation, timeless design and function.
The contemporary and stylish appearance is enhanced by the graceful curves, precise lines, and the distinctive shape of the legs. The ingenious transformation mechanism uses a helicoid motion to turn the coffee table into a dining room table in just a second; each foot comes with high precision ball bearings, ensuring that the movement is perfectly smooth. Intuitive, elegant and practical, the Transformable Table is designed to fit into modern homes and change to suit the owners’ requirements, but also to complement any décor. A perfect balance of design and engineering, each table is made of 300 custom-made parts and features the patented roll out mechanism and synchronizing system. Premium materials include solid oak legs boasting a matte finish, a top made from poplar wood with a satin finish in black or white, and high quality steel. Designed, manufactured and assembled in France, the Transformable Table is a premium quality and highly functional alternative to traditional tables. It is available now to pre-order on Kickstarter and backers also have the option of buying a limited numbered edition or a separate stool. Photo credits: Boulon Blanc.
