This is a fantastic table created by young designer Kenyon Yeh for Danish design brand Menu. It has a strikingly minimal design. Its circular tabletop folds at a right angle into a point that clings to the wall to prevent the table toppling over.
“The inspiration came from a cheerleader practice I passed by one day on my way to work,” says Yeh. “Two students were rehearsing strength and balance. The male student was in sitting position up against a wall (but without a chair) and the female student was standing on his thighs. The table mimics the position of the male student, back resting on the wall and two legs angled away from the wall for stability.”
The Yeh table was presented at Maison & Objet fair and Stockholm Furniture fair 2014 by Menu. It is available in a short or tall version.
