Mechanized Twisting Dining Table Expands To Double Its Size
Nineteenth century geometric design used to create this luxury piece of furniture.
The Fletcher Capstan Table is new offering from a British luxury furniture store called Fletcher Burwell-Taylor. Making use of unique geometry and a design that dates back to the nineteenth century, it’s a truly spectacular piece of work.
A round table capable of doubling its seating capacity, while maintaining its circular shape throughout it’s transformation. The original idea was designed in the nineteenth century by a man named Robert Jupe.
Fletcher has made some improvements on the original, allowing it to operate much more smoothly compared to Jupe’s original table which could not store its own expansion leaves, was not truly round in every stage, and was often slow and laborious to operate.
