Transformer Table — 'Clamp technology with an extended leg'


Wrote Rima Suqi in today's New York Times, "Re-vive Table Legs can be used to make a table out of almost anything — a scrap of wood, a piece of glass, even a book. Richard Liddle, a London industrial designer, came up with the idea while 'researching the energy used in furniture manufacture and distribution,' he said."


"'I didn’t want to add to this problem by creating yet more energy-draining furniture products.' That was when it occurred to him that 'most of us have a waste product or panel that can make a serviceable table,' he said. 'All we require is the means of transforming it.'"


"Mr. Liddle’s solution — which he describes as 'clamp technology with an extended leg' — can be attached to any spare piece of material and removed relatively easily, without tools. A set of four legs, in black or orange powder-coated-steel,


is $160 at branchhome.com."

Good idea, but not at that price. Also, "The legs can support a tabletop as heavy as 19 pounds (8.5 kg)." OK, not for holding a microwave in the kitchen then.
