Less is More; a Dinner Table for Two Reduced to Its Essence

Less is More; a Dinner Table for Two Reduced to Its Essence

This designer from Valencia in Spain believes that even if you have little money and/or space, a dinner for two should always be possible on a decent table. Daniel Gantes designed La Cool Vie Bohème so that couples with a minimum wage can still have a romantic dinner. With the youth unemployment rate hitting 40% in Spain this year, less is more might be a good motto for young designers like Gantes. His table is made of a foldable pine wood stand that holds everything necessary for that dinner for two... plates, wine bottle, glasses and even a flowerpot. So as long as he's dishing out the paella in the kitchen, this table does the trick for small spaces. Visit TreeHugger to see what's new. 30+ fresh, green stories every day!
