A ventilation structure was required for an underground electricity substation below a public space near St.Paul’s Cathedral, London.

Plank is a six-foot length of solid wood, which can be folded into a coffee table, side table or stool and folded out again to make a plank. It works because its four joints, engineered to high tolerances, cross the board at slight angles, causing it to spiral as it folds.   Designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
