a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Joo Design's new cushion table is a multi-functional workspace that can be used in any location.
'TAVOLINO' means "small table" in Italy where the Joo Design studio originates from. Now based in both Italy and Korea, TAVOLINO is the studio's latest collection of lifestyle products. This flexible product can be used both as a cushion and a table through its combination of solid board and sofa bead cushion. It can be easily fixed on the floor or a flexible surface such as a sofa cushion, bed, or on the knees, making it highly useful.
Both the TAVOLINO Stool Table and Cushion Table feature a detachable top using Velcro to create a stool-cum-table. The cushion cover is also removable and machine washable.
For a flat pack version, the TAVOLINO AIR is a new product that compliments the collection. TAVOLINO AIR combines an eco-friendly PVC air tube with an inflatable air cushion. This product can be used in water, and its mobility and easy storage makes it highly useable outdoors.
