A table inspired by a New York pop-up map: Grand Central

I love the ‘mood changing’ element to this piece. When the table is folded away it is almost sleeping in the corner of a room, little more than an unusual side table. Then suddenly as you begin to open it, it explodes into life creating these fantastic origami shapes, blossoming into a practical smooth surface. It’s really intriguing to see how a surface can radically transform its shape and then flourish into a minimal object.  Grand Central is an innovative expandable table that transforms from space-saving occasional table to the central piece of the room. The tabletop is divided into 22 pieces that folds out in a spectacular way through its advanced construction. Dramatic and poetic at the same time. The inspiration comes from a pop-up map of New York. Sanna Lindström and Sigrid Strömgren are two independent designers situated in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden. Grand Central is their first piece together.
