These Syncline Folding Desks, created for flexible workspaces and schools, are by Australia-based Sylex Ergonomics.
They're up on lockable casters, and a locking dial beneath the worksurface allows the tabletops to tilt.
With the tabletops tilted, they can be nested for storage.
I wondered what that perforated black panel is for; the company explains it's a "modesty panel" (e.g. if the sitter is wearing a short skirt).
A mechanism beneath the desk allows you to link multiple units together, either side-by-side or at a right angle.
Shown above is the 1500mm (about 5') wide unit, which seats two side-by-side. There's also a 750mm (about 30") wide model, below, that seats one.
I tried to find the designer(s) or design firm responsible, but the company apparently does their stuff in-house.
Nice version of a concept that been around for many years.
It seems like they could put a twist mechanism on the long angled leg for flatter storage, but given the nesting functionality of the form, it would probably be redundant.
