With Turning Table, German designer Theresa Arns puts her spin on the classic modernist's dilemma: how to keep creature comforts near at hand while hewing to an uncluttered ideal. Her low table conceals a storage space within its round contours for whatever you want at hand, from magazines and books to remote controls and portable electronics to games and toys. The table's surface swivels open by rotating on one of the legs, revealing the handy enclosure below. Ideal as an occasional table in the living room or near the bed. Available in a choice of natural oak or black-stained ash with brass or black chrome fittings.

From lighting and furniture, tabletop to bath, the wide offerings of Menu speaks to this Copenhagen-based company’s guiding quest for functional originality. “It’s about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings as well as improving processes in people’s daily lives,” says Menu founder Bjarne Hansen. This is also reflected in its stable of influential creatives including Norm Architects, Afteroom Studio, Jonas Wagell and Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen among others standouts.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production.
