No Problem

Flip Table

Problem – you are short on space or you don’t have enough space for you work, papers, etc.  This leads to tables covered in papers, which get shoved aside when you need to use the table, and eventually leads to total chaos. 

No Problem – Your workstation is located inside the tabletop; close it when you need to serve dinner or use the table for other purposes, open it and your work is exactly as you left it.

The example above is why I’m so happy to tell you about Danish Design Collective No Problem. Each of its pieces is designed to solve a problem, and both the problem and solution (or what they call “No Problem”) is clearly explained on their website. With a great design like the Flip Table show here, I don’t think it’s necessary to explain the problem and how it’s solved, but there’s something about the way they do it that seems to make it even more genius than it already is – great writing at its finest.

No Problem offers “innovative solutions to common problems”.  Its goal is to understand need and optimize everyday life, while pushing towards a holistic design evolution. More creative genius here.
