A Folding Table Called Lucy

Alexander Lervik has designed a new folding table called Lucy for Swedish furniture company Johanson Design. While most folding tables are simply functional with no real thought put into appearance, Lucy aims to change that with its innovative folding leg mechanism that looks great when the table is set up or folded flat.

The table legs lock into place when either folded out or flat with the help of leg tension and the S-shaped slot. It’s also what gives the table its unique look making it stand apart from folding tables of the past.
