Tiny city living spaces can be frustrating at times, making entertaining or merely dining at home a challenge for urban dwellers. But Orla Reynolds' design, As If From Nowhere, may solve this problem.
Reynolds has created a bookcase that stores tables and chairs. The bookcases are adjustable to fit in any area, and house four chairs and two tables (which can be placed together to make one larger table) that slide into them. This means that nothing has to be moved from the shelves when you want to use them.
With a multi-functional approach to her product design, which delivers a sense of quirky playfulness, As If From Nowhere gives you both storage space and a dining set that can be easily assembled for unexpected guests.
