Due to popularity of wireless devices, we also need smart charging solutions to keep our devices powered. Fold Wireless Charger has been designed to offer a solution of a portable multi-chargers that we don’t often find on the market. This charger allows you to charge up to three devices simultaneously, as it folds into different configurations, you can transform it into a phone stand or portable-friendly stack.
Fold Wireless Charger is not just a functional product, it’s also a way for the company to explore how it can create sustainable, tech products while raising awareness of the environmental impact of electronics. Other charging devices are usually built by sandwiching dozens of different materials between layers of glue, thus, making them inaccessible for reuse, repair, or recycling at the end of their lifespans. Fold is different, it’s been stripped back to its fundamental necessities, delivering a skeletal aesthetic where it can be easily taken apart for upgrade or maintenance.
Designed by London-based, Blond Creative Studio, Fold Wireless Charger features transparent materials to highlight its technology within. Even though there’s an aesthetic appeal when we exposure the inner workings of a sophisticated device, the real intention for this charger is to unveil its inner technology and encourage maintenance. Applying “form follows function” design principle, Fold uses plastic housings clam and capture that soft silicone mat between them, it eliminates the need for glue while providing safety-compliant tech product.
For the packaging, instead of using two layers of packaging (mailer and primary), Fold comes in recycled and recyclable primary packaging which has been designed for shipping as well. It eliminates the need of unnecessary packaging.
