‘Decapo-table’ – ‘Jointable’ (Prooff)
The idea of the ‘decapo-table’originated from the contemporary way of living, this in family homes as well as in public meeting places such as bars, restaurants, offices and showrooms.
In many houses, the kitchen table proves to be the heart of the house where friends and family get together and share opinions and feelings. Also, in offices or showrooms, meetings seem to generate more flow in an informal environment than in classic meeting rooms. ("Nieuwe Werken"). High bar tables are more easygoing and surpass the traditional sit-down dinners which again result in a more casual atmosphere.
Bar tables have so far proven to be bringing people together, however standing can get tiring as well.
Therefore, I wanted to design a table where both standing and sitting were possible without the hassle of stacking and moving chairs.
A logical answer to this problem was unfolding the table, making it ‘decapo-table’.
The decapo-table is : multifunctional/ innovative/ refined / light / attractive / togetherness and intimacy /comfortable/ informal / spontaneous exclusive/ suitable for indoor and outdoor
As every ‘décapotable’ this ‘decapo-table’ suits for two or four persons.
As an architect, I believe materials are the essence of every design. That's why the decapo-table is entirely made out of high quality sustainable materials : coated aluminium / stainless steel / quick dry foam / waterproof upholstery.
The table is simple to assemble in two parts in order to increase flexibility. Each half weighs 50kg.
