Tables are the locus of concentrated activity in both the home and the workplace. Flexibility for multiple uses can become an important component. A segmented table can accommodate varying numbers of people. It can also provide the flexibility of multiple configurations when segmented geometrically in recombinant forms: a rectangle divided longitudinally on the diagonal and laterally in equal segments can also become a parallelogram by reversing the longitudinal alignment.
Use of this geometry for a table creates great flexibility and adaptability. The parts can be assembled as required for large, medium, or small groups, whether for meeting or dining, while any parts not required can be used elsewhere, individually or combined for other functions.
