Traditionally, tabletops are hard and rigid since that offers the best surface to write on with pen and paper; Pet by Mette Karina Johansen, a designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark, is the opposite. Made out of leather, it is incredibly malleable in order to allow for a unique way to store items. When people take into account that most writing is now down on computers and tablets, this progression is not as absurd as it might first seem.
Essentially, Pet by Mette Karina Johansen boasts a lid that opens up to provide a place to store things. The more objects placed inside, the more the leather expands to accommodate them. As PSFK reports, "Johansen writes that ‘Pet’ starts out as an "anonymous" piece of furniture that will eventually become more personal with continued use."
