Rising Side Table by Robert Van Embricqs.

Despoke recently published an article on this Rising Side Table by designer Robert Van Embricqs. Having established himself in Amsterdam, founding an architectural practice, Embricqs design ethos gravitates around the concepts of fluidity, procedural movement and transformation.

First appearing as a flat table top, the side table twists itself upwards, with the multifaceted and layered feel of the legs giving it an appearance of constant-fluid motion, yet these central elements of the piece are handled in a subtle manner, the design is more a thing of intrigue than something intrusive and overbearing. Embricqs has also ensured that the hinges he uses are lightweight, an integral factor in a design such as this, which wouldn’t work without being lightweight and easy to operate.
