People eat in front of the TV - not at the dining table

Most young people today eat most of their meals in front of the tv and/or in the sofa. We wanted to find a way for users living in a small space to enjoy a good meal at the sofa table without having to invest in clumbsy furniture not designed for. their living situation. We wanted to try to evolve the sofachair and make the traditionally clumbsy piece more flexible and multifuncttional.

Small space is not simply about miniturization but flexibility
