You wouldn't often come across such a productive piece of furniture like Transformer by Merve Kahraman that can provide a nil net yield while constantly working. It is an unusual setup to begin with but on observation you'll discover just how unique and playful it really is.

Upon introducing a ball of yarn to the embedded knitting machine, the contraption will quickly crochet a tubular scarf and release it through a hole in the surface of the table. Next you cast off the warm woolly garment and apply it as a lampshade to the affixed light. With the end string pulled out the machine can be fed again, this time disassembling the shade. Transformer by Merve Kahraman sees the lamp spin and the shadows change and fade away as the desk consumes and reconstructs its accessory.
