The cheerful Inflating Table, both a table and its own package, was originally made of two large aluminum pizza-pans, which held the inflatable part between them. In the production series, the pizza pans have been substituted by ad hoc aluminum parts. By removing the legs and deflating the body of the table the object can be stored and transported effortlessly.
