Flatpack Retractable Table: Hit Or Miss?

I am usually a sucker for any furniture design that can slide under the door, or anything that transforms and folds up and away. This table and bench does both, taking up only 4 cm when folded (1.5 inches). But for something so thin, it seems clunky and inflexible.

I am not convinced that the support would be that strong, either; don't put too much weight on the edge of that thing or the screws will pull right out of the hinges. Perhaps that's why I cannot find it on the Italian Foppapedretti site, only on a Slovenian version, and on Freshome.

What do you think?
