This is a design created for the University of Lincoln. A side table that folds-up completely flat to the thickness of 12mm and can be set up again in seconds. No construction or labour is required. The structure folds open effortlessly and locks in place automatically. With the tabletop put on it is ready for use. The table is built out of a clear acrylic with an off-white flocking finish which is translucent. With these materials it can also function as a lamp. The light can be turned on or off with a switch underneath the tabletop. It can also be set to “automatic”, which infers that the light will switch on when the object is folded open and turned off when collapsed. This extraordinary repeat-form is based on an origami technique. The white colour of the base gives it further resemblances to origami. The geometrical shape is finished with a high gloss black rectangle serving as a tabletop. When lit up it becomes a striking object for any modern interior and a portable and easy to set up side table for interiors with limited space. It will fit easily underneath a couch or behind a cupboard for storage. The name ‘plico’ originates from the Latin verb for “to fold”, and the Italian word for parcel.
