Why is it Special?
German designer Theresa Arns was experimenting with ways of combining a table and storage when she stumbled upon the idea of a lid that opens by rotating it around one of the legs. The result is elegant, unpretentious and utterly addictive (show it to guests and they will be opening and shutting Turning Table for hours). “My design is quite functional,” says Theresa. “But I also think it’s important that the objects we surround ourselves with have a warm and poetic part.”
Theresa Arns explains, “I was looking for an unpretentious but elegant way to open the storage container under the top plate and got the idea to open the lid by rotating it around one of the legs. The metal sticks help stabilize the construction and complements the expression of the wooden table.”
Due to its size and storage function Turning Table works great at home – by the couch in the living room or as a bedside table for books, magazines or tissues. It will also suit lobbies, relaxed meeting rooms, waiting areas, cafes or restaurants.
