Form follows function in this design that is built upon a complex system of joinery. Creator Ian Stell calls his piece of kinetic furniture the Sinan Table.
Made from oak slats and brass rods, the piece expands and contracts to create various sized surfaces. The lattice-like form has a top surface of stacked wood when it is in its tiniest configuration and an open-weave grid when it is fully expanded. With stacked layers from the top down to the ground, this table becomes more than just its top surface.
