Additional Information


Inspiration comes from many places, and in the case of designer Kasper Salto's Little Friend™ Table (2005), it was a Disney cartoon character. The "Little Helper" was a humanoid robot with a lightbulb for a head who first appeared in 1956 as an assistant to Gyro Gearloose, and sometimes even as an inventor himself. Rather than a moveable chair used with a stationary table, this is a moveable table to be used with a stationary chair, sofa or bed. The Little Friend is adjustable, from a lap height of 20 inches up to 29 inches, with the push of a button that operates an air-gas mechanism. Smartly designed with a single pedestal base, the table can be pulled as close as necessary, especially when the user sits with one leg on either side of the base. Plus, the axis is placed off center to maximize the amount of tabletop that's closest to the user's body. Weighing 19 pounds, this lightweight design with a handle is truly portable, from room to room, from office to home; wherever space is needed for working on a laptop, writing or any other task. Salto is a trained cabinet maker and prefers working with full-scale 3D prototypes, rather than drawings, as he creates and perfects his designs. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland.
