When you only occasionally need a lot of tables, but don’t have a lot of space to store furniture, fold-up designs can be the ideal solution. In this case, Moxon Architects created sleek, minimalist white work surfaces for Arts Council England that can be hoisted flat against the wall when not in use.
The offices are located in a historic building, with walls clad in recycled timber. There’s only so much room for a wide variety of necessary functions, ranging from conferences to dining. The tables can be raised or lowered at the push of a button, and a weight inside the leg aligns it with a steel plate on the floor to keep it straight.
Transforming furniture makes the most of an existing space, especially when that space comes at a premium and every inch counts.
