dutch designer ineke hans has created the ‘drawer table’ for furniture manufacturer arco. rethinking the standard drawer-kitchen table, the piece has been modified to suit current social habits. tables are commonly used throughout many moments of the day: to eat, read newspapers, work and even play games, making it necessary to store items such as laptops and napkins in between these activities.

presented at imm cologne 2015, drawer table features a thin top, which offers enough room to fit the spacious compartments underneath, while still enabling a comfortable sitting space. the drawers are made from recycled felt-like material and slide in and out easily and quietly. the piece is designed for both home and working environments – the drawer widths correspond to the sitting area for one person, with more able to fit in if necessary.

‘homes no longer follow the lounge + dining room + kitchen formula. the various living uses flow into each other, which puts different demands on the furniture. tables in particular have to be multi-talented; they not only have to be a traditional kitchen table but a desk, work bench, meeting place and dining table as well… and some¬times all at the same time.’ says designer ineke hans.
