Inspired by the benches and picnic tables we would normally see at an outdoor park, this practical piece designed by Legato Studio gracefully transforms from eating surface to seating with less effort than would be needed to fold a futon flat. Debuting this year at ICFF for New York Design Week, the table/bench is made from plyboo (100% renewable laminated bamboo) and finished with a water-based lacquer. Designed to fill a void in urban furniture it’s perfect for city dwellers, and depending on your needs, it can provide either seating and space for three people or seating and surface room for up to six!
