The cleverly designed 'Rising Table' nearly self-assembles with a simple pull that makes it transform.

The creative ‘Rising Table' easily transforms from a single, flat piece of wood into a functional item of furniture with a beautiful latticework of supporting legs. The inspired creation by designer Robert van Embricqs nearly self-assembles with a simple pull. The “table with a twist” is self-standing thanks to the expert latticework and can fold down flat again after use for easy storage.

The Rising Table ignores the cliched notion that a table is little more than a flat surface that is held up by four separate legs. The result is a surprising mixture of fluid design that blends the multifaceted tabletop with the latticework of wooden beams that function as the center of the construct. From there, the table sprouts four wooden beams that hold up the entire construct.
