milan-based designer kostantia manthou has created ‘un·tidy’, a side table which expands to suit the contents being stored within it.
looking to organize the chaos that usually consumes a bedside table, the object features an extendable double surface that can
accommodate the demands of its user.
an accordion of soft leather is sandwich in between two planks of wood, that when separated by books and magazines,
changes in its dimensionality and appearance. supported by four tapered legs, the bookshelf-come-side table is available in a
variety of finishes including a light and dark stain.
