Acton Turville, Badminton, The black box is designed to alert stay-at-home multiple games players. Lots of different games can be housed in the box beneath the fold-down triangular flaps. When raised, they provide neat bays for players to stop cheats, and give lots of leg room. Designed by Christian Woetmann, it is one of the pieces from the Mobelgruppen in Denmark whose exhibits at furniture fairs (including IDI in Britain last June, and the Copenhagen Fair in May 1990) attract attention, and orders, from manufacturers.
