Brilliant.

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.
