Unfolding Circular Furniture

Just like the object that the Fan Table was named after, it unfolds to expand into a larger surface that sports similar pleats. Granted, the Fan Table is too large to use as an actual fan. Instead, it simply resembles one. The true beauty of the Fan Table is that is does not look like it can convert into any other shape other than its original rectangular one.

The Fan Table was designed by Mauricio Affonso. It explores the idea of tables as an infrastructure for social interaction. Made up of 400 slats, the Fan Table can take on any shape, not just that of a circle. It was recently exhibited at Royal College of Art’s PARADISE exhibition during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Venture Lambrate, Milan 2012.
