Ikea Could Learn Something From This Self-Assembling Rising Table

“If Robert van Embricqs worked in Ikea’s design and engineering department, the company wouldn’t have to worry about creating instructional videos for assembling its furniture. All his Rising Table needs is some heavy lifting and the pull of gravity.

The not-so secret is a latticework of intricate hinged wooden slats that fall to the floor when the table’s surface is lifted, automatically forming legs and a handy channel on top or holding fruits and other centerpieces. As an added bonus, the various grooves also means the table is kind of self-cleaning since spilled beverages will simply leak through. Although, the same can’t be said for the floor beneath.”
