Mobile Dining

Thanks to designklub correspondent Jesse for pointing out this one. When I first saw Nobuhiro Teshima's Mobile Dining project, I admittedly glanced at the seemingly bulky frame and passed it right by. But Jesse's enthusiasm made me go back for a closer look.

'Mobile Dining' offers more than just storage space. It actually contains a full scale fold-out table which reveals itself through a series of ingenious accordion extensions. And while the table does seem to sit a bit low, what apartment dweller doesn't want a magical table for hosting the occasional large dinner party? Or for crafting and board game tourneys? The key is, space, and this clever little cabinet offers a lot more than meets the eye.
