The Lucy Folding Table Reorients its Legs Through Wooden Channels

The handy Lucy Folding Table is ideal for use in homes, schools and community centers -- really anywhere that this sort of furniture might be required only occasionally. The object has a set of wireframe legs that tuck into the bottom of the wooden surface, making it compact, easy to stack and ideal for keeping in storage.

There are no hinges in Alexander Lervik's design that facilitate this simple manipulation. You'll see that the top of each triangular support actually separates into two metal tubes, seemingly making it awkward to maneuver. This design decision actually makes the Johanson Design product much stabler while standing, but has required the carving of clever channels through it to make the Lucy Folding Table bend in such a way.
