”I always knew when James had fallen asleep by the thud of the telephone landing on the floor. Every night the same story. He would have liked an extendable bedside table on which to put his phone, glasses or book. When watching a film stretched out on the sofa, we never wanted to get up to eat. We would have liked two height adjustable table-trays for a plate and glass and the remote. When in our studio, we often need an extension for our conference table: a support top to put a cup of coffee on or do sketches on, that would adapt to the height of one’s chair. And that’s how James came up with the idea of a table that would come to your aid at different moments of everyday life”, explains Marialaura Rossiello Irvine / Studio Irvin.
