When it comes to modern homes, space really is at a premium. We look for multi-function furniture to solve our shortage of space and eye-catching designs that will attract attention and provide a great talking point… and Amy Whitworth, designer and founder of Qubis designs give us both!
There deceptively simple, sleek and ultra-modern designs, solve a whole host of problems for families, professional couples and businesses alike.
The Qubis Flipp Table is perfect for businesses or families who use an area for different purposes or have limited space. The dual purpose dining table comprises a natural Oak surface, perfect for formal entertaining – flip it over however, and you’ll instantly have a colourful, creative workspace of colourful Formica.
Qubis have also collaborated with Future Mapping Company to create a Flipp table with a World Map printed into the Formica surface. Simply flip the table on its central pivot to create a multi-purpose workspace, or half rotate it to create a bench/waiting area.
These bespoke, made to order tables can have any design printed into the Formica, as well as using any other material in its place – the possibilities are limited only by your needs and requirements – making this perfect for home and business alike.
Adding simple sliding panels to a classic coffee table has resulted in an ultra sleek dual purpose coffee table and dolls house. Made from solid Birch plywood, the clean modern lines make this a beautiful addition to any living or play room. Use the coloured Perspex panels to hide items within the table – or use wooden panels designed as walls to let your child’s imagination run wild, as they design their own modernist dolls house.
If you want to instantly turn your iPad into a hands-free work of art or want a flat screen TV in any of your rooms – the QUPOD is for you! This wall mounted iPad holder can be flat mounted or hinged to create an instant ‘hands free’ location in any room of your home.
Designed to be a permanent feature, the QUPOD comprises of an Oak frame fitted with an insert of your choice and is available in two size options – to fit an iPad Air or generation 1, 2 or 3.
