Right then team, Thursday morning starter for ten – why is Henry Ernest Dudeney famous? Because in 1903 this mathematician worked out how to turn a perfect square into a perfect equilateral triangle by dissecting it into four distant shapes. Fast forward 100 years and architects David Ben-Grünberg and Daniel Woolfson, who work together as The D*Haus Company, have applied Henry’s approach to creating a stylish, super versatile table.
The brilliance of The D*Table is that it opens up so many possibilities in one product, allowing owners to change up their furniture as and when the fancy takes them, or to adapt to a new space.
David and Daniel aren’t just about tables though and have also turned their talents to lighting and even housing but their current focus is making the D*Table a reality through a recently-launched Kickstarter campaign.
