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.
Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades. Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be. In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design. Morrison has developed several projects in collaboration with Vitra, including the Basel Chair, the Place Sofa and the HAL chair family. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
