Project Brief

Have you ever lived in a small space? I certainly have, which is where the idea of the Flint table originated. Throughout college and grad school, I often found myself in cramped apartments. Frustrated, I started to conceive of a table that could cater to informal and formal occasions.

Project Innovation/Need

The object extends the utility of a space by transforming from a coffee table to a dining table.

Design Challenge

The challenge was to create a single, durable object that does two distinct things without losing integrity.


The table is flat packing, saving materials and space during shipping. The minimal design also makes the most out of as little material as possible.

This award celebrates creative and innovative design for either a component or overall product. Consideration given to aspects that relate to human usage, aesthetics, selection of components and materials, and the resolution of assembly, manufacturing and the overall function.
