Lay back. Sit straight up. Move, turn, work, read, consult or relax. Alone or together.design by Ben van Berkel | UNStudio
People communicate in a variety of ways. The design for the SitTable, by UNStudio's Ben van Berkel, understands this and caters to the needs of these divergent varieties. It allows the SitTable to become a thinking place as well as a social meeting ground all the while creating new possibilities by mixing the limitless options of functionality.
For instance, it may become a quiet reading table found in a library or a work & relaxation place located in an airport lounge. It could simply be a waiting room in a front office or in a school. It may also act as a meeting space for exhibitions or in shops. Whichever role it decides to take on everyone is given the opportunity to discover one's own practical use for the SitTable. It is designed to serve one's own intended purpose for functionality and arrangement.
The hybrid form of the SitTable (produced by Arco Contemporary Furniture) combines two pieces of multi-functional furniture offering a great variety of spacecreating authority to its users. It introduces a fresh approach to the discipline of spatial organization.
