'Altbau' is a clever device that adds extra counter space to narrow kitchens. In many urban apartments, kitchen space often comes as a premium. This stylish folding counter helps consumers maximize their small living space.

The device was designed specifically for older Viennese flats, where the kitchen is often located in a hallway or corridor. The device itself is made from a combination of alder wood, stainless steel and laminated plywood and works as a folding worktop that can be flipped up when needed. The counter locks by itself, meaning it can be set up in mere seconds. When the table is not in use, it can be tucked away for easy storage.

The device is the perfect solution for those with narrow kitchens and limited counter space.
