The 'Bambi' Table by norwegian designer Caroline Olsson can be used at two different levels - as a coffee table or a small dining table. Thereby the table is inspired by the anatomy of the knee, where the bones can only bend one way. The location and angle of the table legs, as well as the meeting points of the joints, help keeping the table upright and stable. When the table is folded down and used at the lower level it can give you associations to a small foal who has bent its legs and laid down to rest in the meadow, like little Bambi being exhausted from romping around.
