Each table is a living sculpture with a wide range of functions
The Pl(a)ywood series, made in Germany by Hamburg designer Silvia Knüppel, lives up to the promise of its name: playful use of this table is not only possible, but positively required.
The table is made up of 33 loosely stacked individual layers of solid wood, reminiscent when fully closed of a classic side table – but only at first glance.
Each of these 33 leaves can be removed from it where required and used as a tray, chopping board or shelf, dissolving the table’s compact, clean lines and transforming what appears to be a workaday piece of wooden furniture into a dynamic, living sculpture with a wide range of functions.
A new version of Pl(a)ywood #2 made in beautiful oak wood (oiled) has been shown in during the Milan Design Week 2017, at:
