The YoYo table is one of a number of furniture designs by architect Michael Kavanagh of Zebra Design. After attending a number of trade shows, Kavanagh set himself a brief to design a table that fulfilled every one of his set criteria – criteria that he felt current products on the market did not meet. The height-adjustable table can be adjusted with ease and speed, giving ample leg room in the raised position; it is stable and rigid at any setting because the four points of contact with the floor remain fixed during adjustment. YoYo is lightweight, portable and functional. As the table surface remains horizontal at all times there is no need to clear the surface before any adjustment. YoYo is currently at the prototype stage.
