Glamping Foldable Suitcase Table

Introduction: Glamping Foldable Suitcase Table

About: A passionate & innovative industrial designer with extensive experience of working on various projects with excellent commercial approach to solving problems, highly developed skills in creating furnitu…

• Minimalistic design approach with little ostentation.

• Lightweight, compact and easy to handle the product.

• Emphasis on craftsmanship and attention to detail.

• Innovative folding mechanisms with an unexpected approach at pockets and

• Compartments.

• Individualistic and modular pieces with smooth clean structures.

• Sophisticated weave and print patterns for the surface.

Initial sketch iterations derive from the concept of the ultra-compact form where functionality is the most important factor in finalizing the end form product. Sketches show the folding mechanisms in structures to give compact forms. Exploration of different compact foldable structures resulted in the formation of the table to be packed into a brief suitcase. Exploring the working of structures to compact form Structure iterations with coherence to brand art Man-ship lead to the development of a locking system for the attached legs to the tabletop. Detailed study and explorations in locking structures comprehended the process of folding and attachment of legs for the working of the table.

Step 1: Initial Ideation & Sketches

Initial sketch iterations derive from the concept of the ultra-compact form where functionality is the
most important factor in finalizing the end form product. Sketches show the folding mechanisms in structures to give compact forms.

Step 2: 3D Visualization & Mock-up

After various explorations on working of locking system, the final rendered digital visual of the product was achieved to be made in Sheesham wood for legs, Burch ply for tabletop, canvas for cladding on tabletop and leather and brass for detailing to enhance the aesthetics of the table as per Portside café standards.
