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.

We particularly like the graphite color, clean shape and the minimalistic design - both waterproof, floating cushions make your journey on water really comfortable, but also guarantee your safety as they are water tight and float.

The Argo – fancy touring boat concept

If you go to Slovenia, you want to visit Ljubljana and tour Ljubljanica River. It flows through the city center, surrounded by art cafes, small galleries, gift shops and the authentic Slovenian architecture. Now imagine doing that in a delightful morning, relaxing with a cup of coffee, while calmly boating on a top notch touring boat and having one of these rare lifetime experiences. Jernej Jaroslav Kropej conceptually made this happen on the Bio.21, the 21st Biennial of Industrial Design, where he has been awarded for quality concept for “The Argo” - A Boat for Touring the Ljubljanica River. Slick and open design, easily connecting you with the environment, perfect buoyancy shape, fine curves ala James Bond style, classic black & white color scheme, everything fitting into a fancy boat concept.
