Mechanical Moving Furniture - OMA Architects

I have been been thinking about ways of incorporating mechanism into furniture aside of the obvious ironmongery. Here is a collection of furniture 'Tools for Life' designed by the office of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas. It is quite magical how these forms can be altered at the touch of a button. Below a rotating counter or room divide.

The furniture was designed for US furniture brand Knoll to coincide with their 75th anniversary. Along with the chair above and the acrylic table below, the range included a number for tables and chairs which could be adjusted in height by touching a single red button, which made me think of an ejector seat.....

You can see a larger article about the range at the link below:
