Living in the age of technology should afford more luxuries like the Astrolab Dining Table. Instead of laboriously extending dining tables by hand, this piece of furniture is conveniently motorized so that it can be elongated at the push of a button. The moving gears can be viewed straight through the glass, creating a mesmerizing show for diners. Of course, it might distract them from the activity at hand: eating.

Created for French furniture distributor Roche Bobois, the Astrolab Dining Table is a divide between steampunk, modern minimalist and futuristic styles. Perfect for contemporary homes, the Astrolab Dining Table is battery operated and remote-controlled. The visible mechanized cog system is beautifully complemented by the polished aluminum legs housed underneath the table. Stats for Modern Mechanized Furniture Trending: Older & Buzzing
