Designed as a part of the ‘Minimal Home’ collection, ‘ Twofold ‘ is a multi functional streamlined shelf desk designed by Berlin based architect Michael Hilgers.
The desk which works like an extended surface after the fixed part is attached onto a wall and the folding portion can be pulled down to form an extended workspace. Once the work is done, the extended unit can easily be folded up to form a storage shelf.
Made from wood, the designer Michael Hilgers used a traditional wooden joint as the connection between the two parts.
From the designers –
‘ Twofold ‘ is a wall mounted shelf that can transform into a simple space-saving desk. Made completely out of wood, twofold reinterprets a traditional wooden connection, turning the product into a hinge itself.
Made from plywood with a melamine coating, the multifunctional product can simply be mounted on any wall. Without any external fittings i.e., hinges, flap-holders, twofold opens and closes, turning into a neat bookshelf when you need it to be, and a rather comfortable work desk when you want it, without disrupting the arrangement of objects kept on your shelf.
Twofold can be mounted at a normal desk height for sitting, or it can also installed to be a standing desk, depending on the users requirements. It has an integrated cable opening at the bottom for charging your mobile devices.
