Collapsible Boat by Thibault Penven

Collapsible Boat by Thibault Penven

This collapsible boat concept reminiscent of a camping tent was designed by Thibault Penven of the Cantonal School of Art and Design in Lausanne, Switzerland. Based on the simple principles of the power of pushing and pulling at any of the number of point of contacts between the individual frames, it is quick to unfold, easy to use, lightweight and fit for an actual safe boat ride. It fits perfectly in the trunk of a car and there is still lots of space to spare for the oars and a cooler bag to make that day out at the lake just right.

Magnetic Hammer by Jung Soo Park

Magnetic Hammer by Jung Soo Park

This interesting solution by designer Jung Soo Park allows you to gather those pesky nails without the bother of picking them up one by one. Very often there are crooked nails left after you have finished nailing anything, aren’t there? It could be at times hazardous to your health to try and pick them up by hand but the magnetic handle on this hammer lets you safely carry them to the trash bin. You can also store your spare nails under there, instead of reaching in the box for each and every one.

Folding ladder

Folding ladder

Most of us have one of those at home. But even if we fold it, it seems to always take up too much space. This innovative design turns the otherwise tough to handle ladder into a useful lightweight tool that is above all more than easy to store. As you can see on the photos, the lightweight yet durable wooden materials, the folding steps design and powerful hinges turn the folding ladder into a trusty, hefty tool that can be stored in the closet taking up little more space than a mop.
