Transforming Furniture Makes You Choose Between Sitting And Eating

Designer Claudio Sibille’s Sensei chairs are perfect for people living in small apartments — providing them with a couple of places to sit and a table for dining. But it’s one of those “you can’t have your cake and eat it too” situations since you have to choose one or the other.

Thanks to a clever design, the Sensei chairs each flip over and combine to form a low-rise coffee table. Kind of like if Voltron was built by Ikea, instead of by whoever the hell built Voltron. It’s a marginally clever idea, it’s just too bad the table looks so hacked together when assembled. So not surprisingly it’s just a concept design at this point, and one that will probably never see the light of day, at least in its current form. [Claudio Sibille via PSFK]
