Foldir / Air conditioner

Foldir
Foldir

The design of the Foldir air conditioner is based on the art of paper-folding. When it is not in operation, it can be folded away to save a lot of space. In contrast to conventional air conditioners, the Foldir can be used in different ways – as a pillar, for example, or opened up as a partition to divide larger rooms into smaller areas – in keeping with the concept of paper-folding. The Foldir is operated using a touch panel.
