But when Austrian filmmaker Nino Leitner walked into designer Lucas Triebl’s office, his first thought was, “This looks like a giant iPhone.” This was how everything started: at TEDxVienna the Table Connect Team presented the ‘iPhone Table’ for the first time, but surprised with an idea worth faking.
