Transforming Couch Ottoman

At first glance, this just appears to be a normal couch with a little armrest / table section in the middle, but slide it out, and you'll see that it's a completely separate furniture piece. You can either use it purely as a table, or place the smaller cushions on the lower sections to transform the table into a legrest / extra seats.

Casulo Magic Box

It might not look like much, but inside Casulo, there's an entire apartment's worth of furniture, including an armoire, a desk, a height-adjustable stool, two additional stools, a six-shelf bookcase, and a bed with a mattress. Designed by Marcel Krings and Sebastian Muhlhauser, this magic box conceals furnishings enough for an entire apartment into a small 31" x 47" box. It only takes two people to lift, carry, and assemble (and then disassemble, when it's time to move) each piece of furniture within the box in a zippy 10 minutes, without tools to boot.

Fletcher's expanding transformer table. It's basically a circular table which, when rotated at its outer perimeter, doubles its seating capacity. The table's expansion panels are stored inside the table and, in just a mere 4-seconds, smoothly and quickly emerge upon rotation, rising and radially expanding outwards as the entire top is turned through 30°.

Japan-based design studio A.P.Works shows what an Albert Einstein-inspired placemat would look like. Mimicking the space-time fabric theory, this placemat seemingly warps the grid pattern, creating the illusion that the plate and silverware are weighing down its elastic surface, in the same way that planets and stars distort the plane of space-time.
