The idea behind the design is to create a coffee table that can easily be transported from indoors to outdoors and vice versa. Useful for supporting various activities, with a clean shape and subtle image to make it combinable with various other new outdoor designs.
The aim was also to enhance the practicality of the object by combining the use of the coffee table with the ability to use a tray and, alternatively, as a future possibility, a cushion. There are two openings on the coffee table, forming a sort of track to house the two supports on the lower face of the tray. This locks the tray into the correct position and stops it from sliding. This is useful for fixing the tray, once joined to the outside and rested on the table.
The same openings can be used to insert the lower hook of a cushion. A similar, larger and lower, table, in varying sizes has also been designed on the same original module and multiplied by four. Two parallel tracks are able to house one, two, three or four identical trays or cushions, as preferred, using a single starting module. The two coffee tables (the high one and the low one), the tray and the cushion (the four pieces) form a little system that adapts to the different needs of the user.
