Folding furniture creates a bridge between high-end design and manageable furniture. It is a design concept that incorporates durable and natural materials, brought together in a thoughtful, foldable design.
When folded, the objects become easy to handle, store and move. When the design unfolds itself, these compact structures become fully grown closets, shelves, wardrobes, and basically any other type of furniture.
A rather simple system of overlapping wooden slats is able to create the folding quality and works as the basic structural idea that allows for a wide variety of different shapes, sizes and ratios.
The ambition is to create a beautiful design that derives its aesthetic qualities from this functional assumption of being able to fold into practical objects.
