Press (2015) is the result of an undertaking to construct a folding table made entirely out of wood. The challenge was to make a table that was lighter yet just as stable to use, just as simple to fold up and just as long-lasting as similar constructions. After years of experimentation the designers succeeded in developing an innovative, adjustable locking mechanism which ensures that the table is not only exceptionally stable but also simple to fold up.
