Stockwerk Foldable Shelf is wooden furniture with cut side walls, enabling this furniture to become a foldable object just like a compressible paper model. Basically it works by negating its material properties, thanks to its smart construction, even solid wood furniture can be foldable. This project is a sign of a new shelf-construction, you don’t need any plug or screw connections anymore, this shelf doesn’t need assembly and is delivered folded up, ready to be pulled into shape.
The side walls are split and fixed with piano hinges, the system is fully linked together, you just need to unfold the shelf and adjust the height as needed, as some compartments can stay closed. Mitre-chamfer on the side wall edges give this system self-stabilizing feature.
