HOBOKEN, N.J.--(Folditure, architecturally crafted furniture with comfort, stability, and eye-catching form, announced today the debut of the Cricket, the world’s thinnest luxury folding table. Together with the Leaf, the world’s first luxury folding chair, Folditure has developed some of the most space-saving furniture systems available on the market.)--
“Folditure addresses this need by infusing its architectural design values, functions and aesthetics into the Cricket to create a high quality, high performance and flexible folding table.”
The Cricket opens easily with one simple movement. Based on a completely new folding geometry and locking mechanism, the Cricket’s planar components move in sync from a flat position to a structurally rigid, three dimensional frame. In essence, all the table owner has to do is hold it by its hanging hook, rest the legs on the floor and gently push the table top down as it pops open. A single Cricket is designed to seat two people. Multiple tables can clip together to form dining room tables of unlimited length. Like the Leaf, at only ¾ of an inch thick when folded and under 24 inches wide, the Cricket can hang in a closet or on the wall.
“The Cricket is a new kind of table where it’s there when you need it and gone when you don't,” said Alexander Gendell, architectural inventor and chief designer of Folditure. “Folditure is all about creating new space-saving solutions yet to be envisioned. The chair seemed like a logical place to start and the Cricket is a logical progression of our design philosophy.”
“With the rise of world population, living space is becoming valuable for everyone. Urbanization and the need for flexibility are increasing demand for effortless space-saving design,” continued Gendell. “Folditure addresses this need by infusing its architectural design values, functions and aesthetics into the Cricket to create a high quality, high performance and flexible folding table.”
The Cricket will be available for online purchase beginning October 22, 2012 at www.folditure.com.
