Idea Refinement – Adjustable Height

I was asked to come out with the design of the stand, and I saw this very interesting shape shifting table that can transform from coffee table to dining table from INSIDER Design. So below is a video showing how it works.

I think what makes it so special is the material, that makes the whole furniture looks good and modern. Which reminds me of what I had came out with last time when I designing the height adjustable stand for my cradle.

So I went to reconstruct the shape of the stand, trying to achieve balance and stability. As I remember Fabrizio told me that never have a full line on the floor as a stand and triangle frame is the most stable structure for being as a leg stand as each legs has to have 2 connections and the insert of the structure must be very strong.
