Rising Side Table by Robert van Embricqs
View Slideshow

The Rising Furniture line is some brilliantly designed furniture by Robert van Embricqs. The latest in the collection is the Rising Side Table where the piece goes from flat to a completely unexpected end table. The tabletop appears to be floating over the base of the table when actually the brackets are cleverly hidden.

The base is made up of wooden beams that fan out in a fluid-like nature that in turn hold the table up. A new hinge system holds all the pieces together making it easy to put together or flatten. Check out the rest of the pieces in the collection because they are all true works of art.
