The D*Table, by The D*Haus Company, is a concept for the mathematically minded design savant (you know who you are). D*House got the idea for the piece from the works of mathematician Henry Ernest Dudeney, who discovered that a square can be transformed into an equilateral triangle (and a lot of other polygons along the way) by segmenting it into four ‘hinged’ components.
Very interesting to be sure, but we’re hot on this table because of its flexibility. Not only can the four components swivel to assume any multiple forms when connected, the parts themselves are joined by removable hinges so they can be taken apart and used separately as well.
We’re equally appreciative of the way the table has been programmed in very practical ways. Various storage compartments occupy each segment – drawers, shelves, slots for books and magazines, even a recess for setting a plant on the table top. Nothing seems to be overlooked here.

Flexible, multifunctional, and constantly changing, D*Table is mobile furniture that can be adapted to suit the fluxus of everyday life. Speaking of which, if you’d like to see this piece come to life, you’ll want to log onto the designers’ Kickstarter campaign to support it. And make sure to reserve a table of your own!
