Piggyback: two equal-sized rectangular tables in one. One on top of the other. A project developed by Magis with Thomas Heatherwick, a young and ingenious British architect. When placed one on top of the other, they look like a single table, and that is how they are used. When divided, they become two tables, to be arranged in whatever way you like. Placed one against the other, the edges are cleverly designed to fit perfectly with each other, effectively creating an extending table. The tables can be placed side-by-side, endon or in an L-shape, offering a range of configurations that would not be possible with “normal” extending tables. Year: 2008.
