German designer Caspar Schmitz, in collaboration with Ralph Ludwig, has created a design concept for a table that is inspired by the functionality of umbrellas.
The Umbrella Table folds and unfolds just like a regular umbrella, making it convenient to store and maintain. Its collapsible design takes only a moment to install.
Implications - Unique furniture designs that incorporate nontraditional elements such as this table appeal to the modern consumer market. Blooming designs that make furniture more compact combine both function and style. To meet the wants and needs of the modern-day consumer, designers will continue to develop furniture items that merge style, compactness, function and even malleability.
