    A Chinese man named Wang Wenxi has designed an earthquake-proof bed. This high-tech bed can automatically turn into a strongbox to help people survive an earthquake. And the bed’s thick frame can support a roof and the extra space inside its thick boards can store essential foodstuffs like canned goods and life sustaining water. They can help people survive for several days before being rescued, Wang said.
    "I experienced the Xingtai and Tangshan earthquakes giving me more understanding of such natural disasters," the retired 66-year-old said.
    "Walking Table," as it is cleverly named, is human-powered, incorporating a mechanical linkage that converts gentle lifting and pushing of the top into oscillations of the legs that move the table across the floor with little effort. By designer Wouter Scheublin.

    Designed in 2004 by Marcel Wanders, the Two Tops Secretary was born of a rather fortunate accident. As Wanders recalls, "I made a mistake, I fixed the table-top under the supporting bars instead of on top, and found a space which was always there but was never seen, I created a lid to cover and to hide and change a few hundred years of classic table making."
    The Two Tops Secretary($2,911) features a fold-away top for hiding away the home office when not using the second, lower desk top. Or the table top creates a useful primary workspace with ample storage underneath. For added functionality, complete this desk with the optional Two Tops Box in white powder-coated steel to tuck away files and paperwork. I love this table!

    The Capstan Table designed by British furniture designer David Fletcher, the table is made on commission for wealthy clients. Each table reportedly cost tens of thousands of pounds. A round table that doubles its seating capacity, from six to twelve, at the push of a button. Available in  manually- and servomechanically-actuated versions.
    "The table top pieces are only truly circular in their larger arrangement. In the "contracted" table, the 6 wedges in fact form a kind of rounded-off hexagon, and the outer table edge is made circular by the rotating rim, which has a complementary inner profile. Besides the wedges, there are two other types of pieces that make up the table top--6 "darts" having two parallel sides that rise to fill the spaces between the wedges, and the "star" (a dodecagram, in fact) that rises up in the middle. The table is locked in either configuration by one or more threaded detents which are quite clearly shown in the upper video. "

    Dutch designers Kapteinbolt has created a flexible workplace, called FLKS. The furniture features a desk and chair that fold out from two hinged sheets. Design firm Kapteinbolt says:
    "We like to introduce FLKS (flex), a flexible workplace. Just open the panels unfold the table and the chair and put the plug in for light. The legs from the table and the chair are provided with special designed joints, pull and turn 90°.

    The dimensions of the panels are a combination of sizes according to the Modulor of Le Corbusier in combination with the functional human sizes of today. This design is characterized by simplicity, clarity, freedom and space. Freedom in using and in arranging this workplace.

    The dialogue between the space and furniture, but also the spaciousness of the furniture itself is an important fact. By bringing furniture back to the essence you can create space. The FLKS provides a definition of space. By giving cover to the back and to one of the sides, the FLKS creates a private and comfortable workplace."

    This project calls "Mercado Negro", by Los Angeles-based artist Ramon Coronado.
    "I took it upon myself to take a shopping cart and make a statement with it. I reclaimed LA's iconic shopping cart and created furniture for kids to enjoy in these urban Los Angeles areas. The project is a criticism of the scarcity of recreational functions for kids growing up in a dense city like Los Angeles."
    Ingrid Brandth's Daily Shelter transforms into a small playhouse. I like it!
    "Feeling safe is not necessarily being safe. We feel protected and secure in surroundings that are familiar to us, where we can control the space around us - physically or psychologically.
    The Daily Shelter is a table inspired by my grandfather Sigvald Andreas Brandth. He was an inventive designer who based many of his ideas on excitement, humor and secrets. And just like his many designs, this table has a hidden story.
    At first glance it looks like an ordinary table. But for the one who knows its secret, it can be transformed into a shelter where one can hide from scary sounds, ghosts or family members. Just like a snail feels safe in its house.
