Lightweight but durable: Press folding table by Karl Andersson

Introducing Press, a new folding table by Lars Pettersson and Morgan Rudberg for Swedish furniture brand Karl Andersson. Made entirely out of wood, Press is lightweight but durable. The table boasts an adjustable locking mechanism that ensures that the table is not only 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 at the short ends of the table.  The tabletop is veneered with oak, birch, ash or finished in one of Andersson’s standard stains on ash, black desktop and white or grey laminate. The table is supplied with a wooden edge strip. 

For a more durable tabletop, buyers may choose a plastic edge strip in white, grey or black. Optional extras are available in the form of castors, link fittings for connecting several tables, and a concealed panel of sound-absorbent material that can be fitted to the underside of the tabletop. 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.

Karl Andersson & Söner is a family business established in the town of Huskvarna in 1898.
