Parents are all too aware of the revolving door of quickly outgrown furniture that goes hand in hand with raising a child. Incessantly purchasing furniture is taxing on both the environment and the wallet. Designer Oji Masanori’s ‘Baby in Table’ [1] is a clever alternative that is both stylish and sensible, as it changes in function as your child grows up. Two pieces of Japanese Beech furniture comprise this evolving design [1] which houses an infant during mealtime (via the cut out square on the tabletop), then becomes a child’s desk, while the chair doubles as a step stool for the entire family. Head to Inhabitots [1] to see all the various ways Baby in Table [1] may be utilized.
