Gironde Extendible Table by Mediodesign

Barcelona-based designer and architect Juan Pablo Quintero designed a custom, extendable table for Mediodesign. Focusing on geometry and functionality, the Gironde Extendible Table is built much like a house would be, with a structural system that ensures the stability of the design.

The design is composed of four triangular pieces that are hidden below the central square tabletop that flip out for extra space. One of the doubled up legs swivels out to support the extended leaf.

The table is made from finished plywood birch that’s covered in Formica® with a heat-resistant ceramic tile inlaid in the center to place hot pots when it’s time to eat.
