Design Story

Folding of flat sheets of material into an extensive number of patterns can create light core structures with high strength to weight ratio and impact energy absorbing characteristics. It is also developed at a cost significantly less that any existing manufacturing process. Folding technology for sheet material is unique and one of the most efficient shape and structural forming processes. We investigated the effect of folding patterns in different thickness of sheet metal and corrugated paper. It led us to what FOLDS is today. We also observed that flat sheets of material is fairly accessible in daily life time, it can easily inspire our audience to create their beloved patterns with their imagination. •

Key differentiations: 1. Simple vocabularies; 2. Easy installation; 3. Wide choices of accessories; 4. Clean power management.

Understructure • Only one size of middle leg and end leg to support primary worksurface 600/700/800mm deep surface.
There is back to back and single side, two kinds of leg; • Cable tray becomes a structural part to support surface with mono beam;
Understructure 700D/800D back to back worksurface requires cantilever bracket. Extension bracket will rest on cantilever bracket and embrace the mono‐beam directly.
Leveling glide can be easily accessed and adjusted by tool gun or Allen key on site, without lifting the leg.
