Tavoflex Makes The Coffee Table Multifunctional

Häfele: Swing up fitting for table tops

(31/05/2010) Multifunctional furniture is the number one choice when it comes to maximum flexibility, creating storage space and optimum functionality. Häfele brings movement into furniture with innovative hardware technology, turning it into a quick-change artist and providing the end user with maximum comfort.

The latest example of the engineering service from Häfele is Tavoflex, a new coffee table fitting that provides clever movement in the form of swing-up table tops with adjustable height, giving the table a truly multifunctional character.

The days when the coffee table was just a place to put down the remote control, the TV paper and the wine glass are a thing of the past. With Tavoflex the coffee table can now be turned into a mini desk that you can put your laptop onto, or even a dining surface that you can use to enjoy a bite to eat - in a comfortable seating position that is easy on your back because the table top can be raised to a comfortable height and also moves towards the seated person. Movement is assisted by a gas-filled strut so that the table top can be moved to the required position as easily as possible. Synchronizing rods provide smooth movement – nothing judders or sticks.

Of course, Tavoflex has an integrated soft closing mechanism. This ensures that the table top is lowered gently, and silently returns it to its original position. On the other hand, if the table top has been raised and swivelled forwards, a safety catch that is secured at both sides prevents the table from unintentionally lowering again. The side covers are a safety feature that prevents objects or even fingers from being trapped in the lifting and swivelling mechanism.


Tavoflex from Häfele turns the coffee table into a flexible desk with space for a laptop, for example.

Storage Space Beneath The Table Top
However, with Tavoflex the end user does not just get a variably adjustable table but also a large quantity of storage space beneath the table top, if required. Unlike traditional drawers, no additional space is required and the compartments are easy to access from above with the table top opened up. This makes it useful for “hiding” books, magazines, remote controls, games and much more. Everything is available in a jiffy – and the coffee table is still well-organised. Made-to-measure organisation inserts for CD’s and DVD’s could be used.

Tavoflex is suitable for coffee tables and side tables – it has an overall width of 698 mm and is suitable for table tops weighing up to 5 kg. The fitting swivels the table top upwards by approx. 200 mm and approx. 150 mm forwards. Tavoflex is supplied in a complete set with gas-filled strut, soft closing mechanism and a synchronizing rod.
By the way, furniture designers could have real fun with Tavoflex, since it may inspire them to come up with extremely unusual table creations. One or more moving table tops with different shapes and sizes, open side compartments and a combination of different materials and finishes would be possible.


The table top is raised and swivels forward at the same time. A gas-filled strut assists the movement. Storage space that is easily accessed from above is exposed when the table top is moved.
