We love this expanding coffee table by kinetic artist, Ian Stell. As a New York resident, Stell understands the need for an economic use of space, so this lattice designed Sinan table can expand when more surface area is required, but then concertina down to a more compact size for everyday display. 

Having created a computerised 3D model of the table, Stell then brought the design to life out of oak slats joined with brass rods. "Mutability in a piece of furniture should serve a purpose, but the act of transformation should be a kind of dance," said the artist of his design.

This coffee table expands and shrinks like an accordion
