This multifunctional piece of furniture is the Le Belge and it is designed by Reinhard Dienes. The reason I call it a multifunctional piece of furniture is because it can be used as a couch-table, night-table, auxiliary-table or sideboard, - really a table for all use. The principle of this table is elasticity of wood, and the Oak it is made from permits a simple and astonishing way of securing the table-top and legs together with the butterfly-screws.
One of the things that is so great about the La Belge is that on tools are needed for setting up and adjusting it. An other thing is that the butterfly-screws allow you to vary the hight of the table-top to any position you would like. The different size table-tops can be combined with one set of legs, and the table-tops can be turned over due to the angle of the cutouts. If you follow my blog, you might already know that I'm going to mention that i like the color of the butterfly-screws? They pop out, and make this table a lot more fun and special.
