I like to think that some inanimate objects are smarter than others, like the candlesticks in Beauty and the Beast. Yes. I believe when we go to bed our toys come to life as well, so sue me. So when I saw this self assembling table, I thought it just might be the smartest table I had seen in a while.
Robert van Embricqs designed this self assembling table to have its legs fall out and create a stand for the table top automatically. As an added bonus, the latticework creates a handy channel for fruit or other centre pieces and anything that spills onto the table’s surface slips right through the same grooves, and onto the floor.
