The Floyd Leg
Create an instant table with this ingenious invention
by Emily Bihl
Furnishing a new home can be a daunting task for anyone, but for those who tend to regularly relocate, it's an even greater challenge. Furniture shopping oftentimes inspires a special blend of dread and guilt at the thought of having to transport new purchases, or leave them behind. Faced with this problem, designers Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell created the Floyd Leg; a set of four individual table legs equipped with F-clamps ready to be attached to any flat surface for an instant table with no hardware required.
Made from cold-rolled steel in local Detroit machine shops, and available in two heights and two colors, the Floyd leg is both durable and versatile. Aside from the obvious benefits of being able to bring the “table” with you, rather than continue the buy-then-dump cycle, the designers also hope that the adaptability of the Floyd Leg encourages users to reclaim disused materials for their tabletops, further cutting down on waste. And since there’s no drilling or nailing, you can switch up your tabletop whenever you get bored or newly inspired.
The Floyd Leg is available via Kickstarter for $189 for a set of four legs.
