Transforming Table That Turns Into A Shelf

February 27, 2018

This is the SWING table/shelf designed by the EVE Collection and available from German Smart Living. It transforms from a table to a stairstep style shelving unit to a regular style shelving unit and looks perfect for breaking things. It's available in five different finishes (plus a suitable-for-outdoor model) and costs around $740. For reference, you could probably buy both a table and shelving unit for less. "But that wouldn't transform." Not everything has to transform, Optimus. "Yes it does too." What about that boat you made out with at that party? "She said she was an Autobot." And? "She was just a boat." And? "I knew it all along." You owe me $10.

Keep going for one more shot of the unit's three natural states and the full video while I speculate whether this is a talf or a shable.


Thanks to Lydia, for reminding I still have a broken wine glass to clean up in the kitchen before I find all the pieces with my feet.

    I have a small apartment and have no room for a dining table. I would love to have one of these. I could fold it up out of the way when not needed. I love it. Wish it was available in northern California.

    It looks bitey.

  • Munihausen

    Sie Germans - is there anything they can't do?

  • rjackparis

    That's cool and stuff. But then you have a shelf too far from the wall.

  • Meh

    Now this is actually pretty cool. I wouldn't say super useful, but cool nonetheless.

    Guys (fellow commentators), Haven't' any of you seen The Lego Movie with Emmet's Double decker couch? Its a lot like that. Its purpose is for those who pile things on shelves; this kind of makes you break that habit if you ever plan on needing a table. Instead of piles, you must become a minimalist. I would be more impressed with a Murphy bed that has a drop down table.

    Cool concept but with limited use. You would constantly be taking crap off either one to convert it to the other and then moving it. Not really saving space when you gotta find someplace else for the shelf items while in table mode.

    I am thinking this is more convenient for people who can't stoop or bend, to be able to put things on the shelf rather than ever function as a table. Unless they live in a very tiny living space.

  • Ollie Williams

    So their market is lazy or old people with WAAAAY too much money. That makes more sense, actually.

  • Meseta

    could they not have produced a single shot of the transformation without jerky zoom and jumpcuts? I feel like I'm viewing this through the eyes of a goldfish with a 0.5s attention span

  • Ollie Williams

    I don't understand why this exists, especially at that price point. Who wants a shelf in the middle of their dining room?

  • mary

    You don't have to use it as a shelf at all. The simplicity of folding it up out of the way us what appeals to me.

  • Closet Nerd

    I'd totally rock that. Save so much space. Can't read German.
    No spreken de Dueche....

    More than meets the eye!

  • TheQiwiMan

    Meh. How many times has anyone been sitting at the table and really wished it were a bookshelf?

  • Tom327Cat

    And here I was just telling the missus that what we really need is a book shelf that is too far away from the wall and a table that you have to align things up perfectly on.

  • Nicholas Conrad

    No brah, I'm standing at a bookself all the time wishing things on the top shelf were 4 feet away from me.
