Sensei: 2 Chairs, 1 Table

by Hazel Chua

Furniture that can be transformed into other pieces of furniture isn’t exactly new. I think the idea was inspired by the fact that most of us are cramped for space in our homes, and convertible furniture seems like a good solution to that. It’s not always done well, but the Sensei is one of the few that is executed almost seamlessly.

Not only is the Sensei a table, but it’s also two chairs as well. The catch is, it can’t be both at the same time; you have to choose between one or the other.

SenseiAs two chairs, the Sensei features an asymetrical, futuristic design with a backrest that’s only supported on one side. If you’ve got enough stools to go around the room but not enough tables, then flip the chairs over to their sides and interlock them like so. The black and white cross at the center, forming a sort-of yin and yang right down in the middle. Once chairs are aligned, just push them together to close the gap in the middle, and voila! You now have a coffee table!

Uruguayan industrial designer Claudio Sibille, however, explains that part was accidental, since the Sensei was the product of “random geometric shapes” that he was playing around with on AutoCAD.

It’s an extremely elegant design, but unfortunately, it’s only a concept for now, with the Sensei you see here being a prototype that Sibille created of his design.
