Berlin-based designer Michael Hilgers created an accessory that could give you a different view from your apartment. 

Called ‘BalKonzept’, the balcony table—made from weatherproof and recyclable polyethylene—rests on your railing and provides you with an open, flat surface to eat, read or work. 

Users can easily place their laptop, books, plates and cups on the table. 

When not in use, it can serve as a tray, a planter, and even a ‘wine chiller’ for when the weather is cold outside.
