These foldings originate in the study of bent sheet metal carpentry for the TSJ project.

The metal sheet folds and shapes a central rib and side flaps, revealing in its profile the thinness of its material thickness and its ability to support weight with minimal operations.

The supported objects remain in a state of apparent suspension.

This system is adaptable to different heights and amounts of elements.
