When describing furniture as nomadic, it usually denotes lightweight, modular pieces that can easily be taken apart to move with you. But Dutch designer Wouter Scheublin created a table that needs no dismantling, as it can quite literally walk to your next home. Inspired by eight-legged creatures, the Walking Table is still graceful enough not to leave scuffing marks on your floor.
The Walking Table is quintessentially Dutch–functional, aesthetically pioneering and unconventional. Its combination of exquisite mechanics and skillful carpentry means that all it needs is a gentle human push and off it goes.
Scheublin’s table is chunky in appearance but rhythmic on its walk. It’s available in a walnut edition of only eight pieces, but it can be custom-made to suit different tastes.
