Super Fold Table
Museums, galleries, restaurants and similar institutions often require versatile tables that can be used in a variety of settings. Since such facilities tend to have limited storage space, a table type is needed that can be quickly and compactly stowed away and just as easily set up again. These needs are fulfilled to perfection by the Super Fold Table, making it an ideal choice for all meeting, event and food service locations where flexibility is key and furnishings are frequently rearranged in different layouts. The Super Fold Table folds up completely with a single movement of the hand. The mechanism not only tilts the table top into a vertical position but also simultaneously rotates and aligns the legs of the four-star base so that the whole table is reduced to a single plane just a few centimetres deep. The folding mechanism is activated by pulling on a recessed grip under the table top. The grip is easy to locate, thanks to a screw that discreetly marks its position on the corresponding side of the supporting column. Once folded, the recessed grip serves as a carrying handle, making it possible to transport the Super Fold Table with one hand. The Super Fold Table is available in both sitting and standing height.
Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the ‘super normal’ design philosophy: rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results, he often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development and refinement. He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.
