The table is like a solid cube. Until it opens It has a flat service when it is closed or not, which is a characteristic of a table. Either way it is a table. it could be a side table when it looks like a cube or dinner for two when you pull it apart.
This is a genius idea. A chair/ bench that can transform into a table, or both! This would be excellent to use in a smaller space where having multipurpose furniture is key to a functioning space. Or an outdoor space.
