Press | Wooden legs

Design by Lars Pettersson & Morgan Rudberg

Press (2015) is the result of an undertaking to construct a folding table made entirely out of wood. The challenge was to make a table that was lighter yet just as stable to use, just as simple to fold up and just as long-lasting as similar constructions. After years of experimentation the designers succeeded in developing an innovative, adjustable locking mechanism which ensures that the table is not only exceptionally stable but also simple to fold up.

In addition, the legs lock in place without the need for a cross-piece or stretcher, thus providing knee room for comfortable seating at the short ends of the table. A concealed grip milled into the underside of the tabletop makes moving the table simpler.

The tabletop is veneered with oak, birch, ash, standard stains on ash and white glazed oak or ash. Top is also available in laminate (white, black matte, oak, birch or ash) and black desktop. The table is supplied with a wooden edge strip or for a more durable tabletop, choose a plastic edge strip in white or black. Stacking and safety cover in felt of the color anthracite as standard. The cover is also available as an option in the colors light gray and off white. The solid wood legs are in oak, birch, ash, standard stains on ash or white glazed oak or ash, and have felt floor protectors as standard.

Optional extras are available in the form of: Power outlet – two different types. Start cable 5m, with safety plug and cable to connect 3m, with other tables. Modesty panel in felt which hangs on hooks. Two wheels which are not lockable, giving slightly mobility to the floor. Link fittings for connecting several tables. Sound-absorbing disc that is mounted under the table top, which cannot be combined with electrical outlets. Also available is a storage trolley with locking wheels and a metal handle that can be placed either on the side or the short end. For tables with a length 1600mm or longer we recommend that they are transported horizontally, which means that the handle is to be mounted on the trolley’s long side.

Press can be used either as a folding table that can be simply erected to provide a sturdy working surface, or as a more permanent wooden table that is easy to fold up and store out of the way when necessary. Press is an ideal solution in lecture halls, meeting rooms, lunch rooms, all types of conference facilities, schools, hotels, churches, etc.
