If you have all the room in the world, you probably don’t care about optimizing your living space. However, if you live in a small apartment you have to think about every inch. AKKA, a design studio located in Göteborg, Sweden has created a table that may help you achieve your storage goals...

This isn't a new invention, but if you ever have the “good fortune” to fold some of those tables out there you'll understand that it isn't as easy as it sounds. You actually have to kick some tables into submission, maybe hurting yourself a bit in the process. This table from Ola looks quite different, from what I can judge from the video below. The Ola folding table improves the folding process so it takes the most minimal amount of effort. Not only functional but easy on the eye as well. You can judge for yourself.
