Fold Yard by Benoit Challand

The multifaceted illustrator turn the forms and shapes of office furniture into a quirky new font.

French designer Benoit Challand gives new life to the open office system by converting desks into typography inspired cubicles. Every desk in his office is shaped as a different letter of the alphabet, transforming the archetypal  workspaces into large scale alphabetical sculptures.

Challand aims to change the monotonous image of the office by making the space more fun and surprizing. The shapes remain abstract until viewed from above. When you discover this trick, you can make the furniture spell out words or phrases by arranging it in a certain way. By adding this modular element to the office, the multi-faceted designer enables us to combine both work and play.
