It is a round table which, when rotated at its outer perimeter, amazingly doubles its seating capacity and, just as astonishingly, remains truly circular. Very importantly it stores its expansion leaves within itself. Existing tables can seat six persons when small, and twelve or more when expanded, but there are other design possibilities.
Operation, which has been described as pure magic by Boat International magazine, really is a sight to behold and extremely quick, it taking only three seconds to complete an entire expansion or reduction cycle. Its intricacy changes, according to the species of timber used, as the table metamorphoses from small to large, and vice versa.
