Fold Yard by Benoit Challand, a french creative image maker focused on digital art, 3D illustration and typography, could make open office spaces more widely accepted in the workplace. Each desk has been modelled after a letter in the name of the company. Although they look like cubicles from above, it is easily discernible that the low walls ensure everyone has a direct view of each other for convenient communications and more.

Of course, the desks making up Fold Yard by Benoit Challand are abstract unless viewed from above, which makes sure that the designs don't get too tired too fast. Fast Co Design writes, "You can sit in an A-shaped desk, feeling like you’re at the prow of a ship, or in the smooth curve of a D, far more comfortable than being boxed into a traditional cubicle."
