Folding flower table


As a newcomer we have this prototype folding flower table. The tabletop is a hexagon which unfolds in three parts. After a single unfolding action you can do a second one and the result is a big hexagon shape, which is three times the area of the unfolded tabletop.

Once you have the basic folding/unfolding done, you want to do crazy stuff. A lot is possible with this table. Just try it out :-)


A bit about the creation of this table. With the help of 3D printing, I managed to make hinges that are exact the size that are needed for this design. Also the legs are made of rectangular plywood pieces and put together using 3D printed parts. The hinges still look a bit technical, but I'm working on that.
