I can't say it's any more practical than existing kitchen countertops, but the Accordion Table concept would certainly make an impressive centrepiece to your cooking space.
Instead of being bolted to the floor, the Accordion Table is fit with wheels (or something that can scrape against your flooring), allowing you to pull and rotate the tabletop to reveal hidden compartments at the seams.
As the design dictates, these compartments can be slid out easily for cleaning or replacement. And you still get some drawer space at each end of the table.
Yes, it's a bit design for designs sake. But come on - admit it - the thing looks pretty cool, even if its convenience is a bit of an illusion. [Yanko Design]
