Transformer chest has two chairs and a table hidden inside

If you have ever lived in a tiny apartment, you know that space is at a premium. Finding way to fit stuff in is always a challenge, but this chest somehow manages to convert Transformers style into a table and a pair of chairs while looking chic and sophisticated.

Created by Uruguayan designer Claudio Sibille, the Ludovico chest is made from eucalyptus wood, and simply looks like a very cool designer chest when it's all put together, Remove the table and pull out the chairs, and suddenly you have a complete set of furniture that can disappear again at a moment's notice.

Now all he needs to do is convince a furniture company to make it, before Ikea steals the design.
