Extendable Table Grows and Shrinks Without Swapping a Single Part

A small subset of the world's industrial designers seem to be focusing their efforts on creating new and innovative ways for an intimate dining table to transform into a place for a large dinner party. This latest design is courtesy of Julien Vidame and uses a series of rolling boards that lay flat or stand up to change the length of the table.

Like a mercifully silent accordion the table can grow from a cozy 31 inches to 62 inches in length, doubling in size and boosting the number of diners that can gather around. Unfortunately there's no pricing or availability info just yet, but Julien claims a working prototype does exist and is ready to go into production just as soon as a savvy investor realizes how awesome the design really is.

That's... actually pretty cool. It'd be even better if there was some way to lock it in between the two distances—say around 48" and put a flat surface on top. Stored under the table where nobody would see it, perhaps.
