NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Resource Furniture, named "the biggest retailer in multifunctional space" by The Wall Street Journal, proudly announces the debut of the Icaro, the latest – and most unique – transforming table to join the company's collection of transforming, space-saving and multi-functional furniture. With its modern look and unprecedented trifold design, the Resource-exclusive Icaro has expanded the market for folding furniture, bringing the folding dining table into the world of high-end design.
The modern, architectural Icaro, created by elusive folding furniture designer Nils Frederking of Berlin, Germany, features a circular top comprised of three articulated panels that fold completely flat with one smooth motion. When closed, the Icaro stores away at a slim 3.5'' deep, making it one the sleekest and most compact pieces to join the Resource family of space-saving products. When open, the tabletop unfolds to 47 ¼' in diameter, comfortably seating up to six.
The Icaro folding dining table makes its debut as the signature piece in Resource Furniture's new and exclusive line of height-adjusting, transforming and expandable tables. This new and exclusive Transforming Table collection features a wide variety of coffee-to-dining tables, console-to-dining tables, and extending dining tables, each designed to increase the value and function of space.
Inspired by the inverted umbrella, the Icaro made its mark on the design world more than a decade ago, when a video of designer Nils Frederking operating the table at the 2007 Milan Salone Satellite exhibition went viral, garnering millions of views and praise from design publications the world over. Frederking says his intention was to design something completely outside the realm of traditional folding furniture. "It was always important to me that I invent the folding mechanics, and not simply redesign what was already available," he said. "I was seeking a challenge, as it is much more difficult to design a beautiful folding chair or table, especially one that does not look foldable. These folding mechanisms make it possible to move away from the traditional image of folding furniture as something provisional."
As homeowners and renters increasingly desire more flexibility from their homes, and the demand for space-conscious and double-duty furniture continues on the upswing, the Icaro, along with the entire transforming furniture collection, provides an elegant, intuitive and perfectly efficient space solution without compromising style.
