Coffee table design that offers simplicity and functionality

Functionality plays an important role in furniture design. This is an indisputable fact, the designers repeatedly confirm with their new collections. Contemporary furniture as refined be – simply look and perform more than only a function. Flexibility and adaptability are of great importance here.


So is also the case with the piece of furniture that today stands in the spotlight – the ‘tool’-coffee table. This is a joint project between the Italian James Irvine Studio and the Swedish OFFECCT Design Studio. Right here down to see the result…

Height-adjustable coffee table – so it is much more comfortable

Snow White, compact and very elegant – we see that even at first glance, if we look at the image above. Combined with this great sofa in bright red, the “tool” coffee table needs no additional “Accessories”. Maybe just a book on it and a hot cup of coffee. Well, that’s why the table has been designed actually.

Designer Marialaura Rossiello Irvine recalls how James Irvine (the founder of the eponymous Design Studio) is asleep used with cell phone in hand. Then she wished always a bedside table, where she could put down the phone and maybe even a glass of water. Thus, the idea was born to create a versatile side table which fits into every room – in the bedroom next to the bed, as well as in the living room next to the sofa, but still in the Office or in the home study.

At second glance, we see also the small lever under the table top. Of course, this allows the main table function – just his height adjustability.

The only table leg has also a very interesting shape that gives stability and flexibility to the table. And the coffee table is highly easily portable. And all of these functions are fulfilled by this very simple design. Impressive, or?
