We have been long-time fans of Italian home furnishings company Calligaris, so we were thrilled when Toronto got it’s own store a few years ago. Combining clever functionality with an Italian sense of style, their great designs hit all the right notes. Many of their pieces are multifunctional, and they offer a large selection of tables that transform with a few simple touches making them both beautiful and practical. Recently they received the new Orbital table, an innovative and award winning design by renown Italian design company Pininfarina, the people behind the Ferrari and the Alfa Romeo. The design fuses form and function to create a stunning table that is both high-tech and sexy. Have a look:
The best part is watching the ingenious opening mechanism move in a light, fluid motion. Check out their video:
Here are a few more examples of their transforming tables. The Airport One is a sleek, modern extending table that doubles in size.
The clever Mascotte works as both a coffee table and a dining table – perfect for multifunctional spaces.
