"Plane" and Simple

by Jenna Fribley

It may appear to be simple upon first glance, however the design of this folding table & stool set is actually quite clever. Each piece folds into a one-inch thick plane, smooth and flat for convenient storage. To set up the pieces, the user simply unfolds the two "leg" planes and locks them in the open position with a wooden "C."

The flat, stackable nature of this design allows for ease of shipping with minimal packing materials. Furthermore, 2 tables and 4 stools can be constructed from a single 4'x8' sheet of plywood.
