Playful use of this table is not only possible, but positively required

Design / Market News By Editorial Staff,

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.

  • 20 Years of New Creativity – SaloneSatellite / Salone Internazionale del Mobile
  • Planets and Stars of new creativity – Fabbrica del Vapore
