‘foldboat’ by max frommeld and arno mathies

 

 

uk-based designers max frommeld and arno mathies designed the ‘foldboat‘ as a seamless, hard shell, folding boat that is fabricated from one single sheet of plastic.
the flat-pack leisure boat is designed for flat water environments, featuring durable live hinges allowing the 2.50m vessel to be opened out flat
or into a small parcel measuring 150cm x 80cm. ‘foldboat’ was developed after a paper-folding workshop where systems of creating various
forms from a single piece of material was explored.
