Christy Oates invented this smart fold-out furniture—ideal for tiny spaces—as part of her master’s thesis. Oates’s Twofold series of furniture takes up virtually no floor space when it it’s not in use. The furniture is not yet available on the mass market, but I hope it will be soon. Young inventors like Christy give me so much hope.

That is simply fascinating. I love to see these ingenious creative ideas and I am specially interested on space saving furniture because we all know how expensive a house can be these days. I saw some creative pieces of furniture on this source as well. It's amazing how far people's minds can get.

Christy is an absolute genius! I love the fact that her furniture is based off of oragami and looks like artwork. They look like pieces that would come from IKEA. Just amazing!
