While folding furniture and small space go together like milk and cookies, folding furniture and elegance – is a rare combination. Usually when we think of a folding item, we see images of something rather cheap and unsightly. The works of German designer Nils Federking are a refreshing exception. His pieces are slick, beautiful and really thin in its folded state. Each item has a well-though-out mechanism, allowing to fold/unfold it in seconds. They are not one-track design either. Federking experiments with different forms and shapes and invents a specific folding principle for each one. I also appreciate the fact, that most items are free-stranding when folded, so you can display them. Clever.
