You desperately need a table for the dining room in your new apartment before your parents come to visit. You know what your mom will say if she sees you’re eating on cardboard boxes (again). But hitting IKEA on your only day off, which also happens to be the same day everyone else in the city has off, does not sound like time well spent. You could shop online and have it ordered, but you work long hours—if you’re not home to meet the delivery truck, you’re out of luck. Such conundrum was the impetus behind the Postable table by Studio Toer. Made out of 1 mm stainless steel, the table breaks down into its requisite parts that fit into a mailing envelope. Yes, you heard that right: order your table (which comes in several sizes, up to six feet long!), and then wait for it to arrive in your mailbox. No borrowing your neighbor’s truck, no paying the crazy guy downstairs to meet the delivery driver.
[quote] Postable is a stainless steel table design. It is a modular system. Each element fits within the outer dimensions of regular mail. A full-size dinner table can easily be assembled from the content[s] of one envelope.” [/quote]
