The only one of its kind

The FOLD! is not only stylish – it floats! Like a robotic arm, the wafer-thin display moves forward and when extended, it remains as an elegant tablet floating above the table surface. Equipped with a touch display, it can even be used like a tablet at any angle for comfortable viewing. The FOLD! Is available with and without touch overlay to fit your needs.


The FOLD! takes the ideal tablet position on the table after it appears whisper-quiet from below the table surface. Although, FOLD! is not a stand-alone device.  It is designed to be part of a professional AV media installation – with all the security features, video interfaces and functions that are needed for a meeting or conference room. FOLD!, with its 17.3“ screen, is larger than a conventional tablet and offers a more comfortable viewing area but unlike a tablet, integrates seamlessly with an AV installation.

“The idea was to combine the best of both worlds.”

FOLD! impresses with its design.

With its unique look, FOLD! is the first of its kind – worldwide. Made of aluminum and glass, the elegant monitor appeals to all of the senses. From the moment it appears from below with its beautifully elegant movement as the screen presents itself to the user, FOLD! invites conversation. When in use, collaboration among users in the room is effortless due to FOLD!’s low angle.
