The small, portable, and frankly genius Sky Deck table is a mini table designed to "wrap" itself around the rails of balconies or fire escapes, giving you just enough horizontal surface space for a small plate and something refreshing to drink.

The table was designed by Japanese firm Torafu Architects in collaboration with Ishinomaki Laboratories, based in the city of Ishinomaki, which was devastated by the tsunami in March of 2011. The tables are manufactured by people in that region in an attempt to support and reinvigorate the local community.

What do you think? I love the idea, and if I was at all DIY-inclined, I'd try to replicate it myself.
