What if a bench is also a table?
FOLD is an interpretation to the question above, to fulfil multiple functions yet retain a simplistic and sturdy form to be used in the public.

This piece of furniture is not much more than a piece of plywood folded back on itself at an angle.
Yet, this simple manipulation creates another surface that can be used as a table, without sacrificing its unanimous form with extensions or appendages.
In addition to fulfilling the functions of chair and table as one piece, the minimalistic aesthetic of FOLD appeals to different visual environments, making it all the more a versatile piece of furniture to be used and displayed.
