The Rising Side table is the latest design from the fascinating Dutch designer Robert Van Embricqs.

The side table is made to rest in two forms: a standing table and a flat rectangular board. When the table is needed, it can be propped up and turned into a table. Embricqs' clever design allows users to choose between the option of having a table or storing it away when space is needed.

The Rising Side table is connected with strategically placed incisions to one piece of wood. It makes for a simplistic, yet vibrant beauty with its own shape and coiling structure. It can be used as a great accent against other heavy and non-texturized pieces and its bright veneer color will stand out.
