Goliath table 2.0 – Extreme folding table!
The Goliath table is an amazing space saving table, and it’s one of our all-time favorites.
It is a very flexible piece of furniture, sleek design, simple and with a nice finish. Place it against the wall like an entrance piece, where you can put your keys, a bouquet of flowers or a painting above it.
Or put your laptop on it, and use it like a desk for working at home. Maybe put one or two office drawer units under it, for even more maximization of space.
Fasten your seat belt, and check this out:
This table is the latest upgrade from the original Goliath design from Italian designer Ozzio. It’s very light and can carry a heavy load.
We tested it out in Copenhagen last year (the video above).
The difference being, that the center support will turn 90 degrees, to give extra support, when the table is fully extended to seat 12 people.
You can see this feature at 1:01 in the video above.
The Goliath Table is kind of magic
When you need to seat a lot of people, you just pull it out. It goes from 17 inches to 115 inches (45 – 290 cm) in a few seconds.
The bridge for the extension leaves is made of aluminum. This makes it slide very easily, you don’t have to struggle and worry that it will get stuck because the joints are too tight.
A lot of thought has been put into the design. When you pull it out, an extra set of legs automatically gets pulled out to where it’s needed, to support the structure.
You just put in the number of extension leaves you need, and its ready for your big dinner night.
When the table is fully extended, you will have seating for 10- 12 people around the Goliath Table, and everyone will be amazed when you push it back together to create an open space.
This transformation is just jaw-dropping.
The extension leaves you will have to store somewhere in your apartment / house, which is the only downside to the Goliath Table. But the finish and potential of this table makes you forget about that as soon as you see it.
The price of the Goliath table is high and will not be worth it for everybody, but for most people in high-rent areas my assessment would be it could be worth it.
Luckily there’s a cheaper similar table
We have tried to find cheaper alternatives to the Goliath table, and this one will also amaze you by the same clever design and stylish white finish.
It does the same trick as the Goliath Table and will expand from 16” to 95” (40 – 240 cm).
It will expand to seat 8 people, and collapse into a small console, just like the Goliath table.
It is a lot cheaper than the Goliath. We have only seen it online though.
A more traditional transforming console table (cheaper)
The next one has a more classic and traditional design.
It also transforms from console to dining table. It will extend to 72” (183 cm) and fit 6 people for a nice dinner.
Enables you to live in a smaller space
You can save the rent for that extra room, and still have space to entertain guest at the dining table, you didn’t think would fit inside your apartment / house.
A really great space saver, and an awesome piece of furniture.
The console / dining table furniture is probably one of the best and most effective space saving solutions we have come by for downsizing.
We also have other good articles about space saving furniture for small spaces, as you can see below here.
