Folds collection for VDF x Ventura Projects

Folds uses single pieces of folded steel to create homeware collection

Slovenian brand Folds is exhibiting a range of products that are made from a single piece of folded steel at VDF x Ventura Projects.

Exhibitor: Folds
Project title: Folds

Folds is brand based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, which specialises in design using steel. Each of its products is made from a single piece of metal that has been folded to form a 3D object.

The brand is presenting a range of its products, also entitled Folds, as part of VDF x Ventura Projects. This includes the curved Rocking Light and zigzagging Chair57.

Folds' products are deliberately minimal to "allow the material to speak for itself". This also leads to the products "dematerialising" into stark 2D symbols when viewed from certain angles.
