April 30, 2008 The benefits of dual-mode dining tables are well established - a compact unit that saves space for everyday use becomes an entertaining centerpiece when guests arrive. But when it comes to round tables, most expandable designs introduce a square extension into the center, meaning the symmetry of your circular dining experience goes out the window. Not so with this unique fold-out table created by French designer Philippe Braun which uses a patented mechanism to keep the table circular in its expanded form via extension leafs on every side that integrate into the tray of the table when not in use.

The award winning Braun Woodline expanding table is available in beech and oak timber finishes or customizable using steel, glass, stones, leather composites and other materials. The three different sizes range from a 4 - 8 seater up to an 8 seater that expands to accommodate 16 people.

Further info and a video demo is available at the Braun Woodline site.
