Swedish carpentry studentNathalie DackeliddesignedWoodenCloth, a flexibletable that can do wonders in tight spaces. Seemingly inspiredfrom a caterpillar’s track, thisproject can be enlarged little by little, unlike other tables with fixed extensions. The unconventional table is made of locally grown ash, with a transparent Osmo oli finish: “The end grain of the ash woodmakes a beautiful pattern in the triangular shape, which also reminds me of my grandmother’s crocheted tablecloths,” Natalie stated. In order to expend the table, the user has to drag a special handle beneath. Check out the video below to see how this process is done in a simple and elegant manner:
The Wooden Cloth is said to adapt to the many living situations modern life has to offer, be it in a largehome or a small refuge. Its name is provocative and inspiring at the same time: “Instead of having drop-leaf construction where the hanging table tops close off one or two sides I wanted to create a use for the hanging parts, which turn out to looklike a tablecloth when it’s contracted,” explained the designer. What are your thoughts on this new table project? Find it as ingenious as we do?
