Designer Wouter Scheublin has created a mechanically impressive table that mimics a natural walking motion when pushed or pulled. Its eight legs give it the impression of a giant wooden arachnid as it moves.

It would certainly make rearranging the furniture in your home or office an easier task, and it challenges our “perception of the ordinarily static piece of furniture,” which is what the designer had in mind.

Take a look at the video below to see the walking table in action:
