Our Favorite Foldable Product Designs
The Two-in-One Home Piece
Our Texas product design specialists know that products that exist with two in one function are a great option for those who need more space in their homes. Having a piece that can both co-exist as a functional product and one to leave as home décor is a smart way to create a multi-use product. Sukwoo Lee designed an innovative kitchen strainer that folds from a peacock/bird-inspired home piece, into a kitchen strainer! Simply fold the neck of the bird piece back as a handle and use the ‘feathers’ as a strainer for your food. When finished, fold back the neckpiece and reassemble the strainer as a home piece instantly.
An Easy Product for Coffee on the Go
If you’re a big fan of coffee and having a well-made brew is important to you, our Texas product design specialist loves the ‘Pourigami.’ The Pourigami is an easy, portable, and foldable product that is perfect for you. Designed for those who need to have access to pouring a cup of coffee anywhere, the Pourigami is a creative way to take coffee with you no matter where you go. The Pourigami takes the same amount of space as around three credit cards piled together and using three interlocking metal plates, the Pourigami can simply be unfolded and used to brew one cup of coffee at a time. The Pourigami is designed to fold out as a triangle making it stable to brew coffee no matter where you are and put right back into your pocket.
An Innovative Fitness Product our Texas Product Design Specialist Loves
With home fitness being more popular than ever, more people are looking for inexpensive and innovative solutions as to how they could stay fit and create their very own personal gym while staying at home! While it is available to purchase workout equipment for the home, a lot of people struggle with finding the right space to put a lot of heavy equipment in their space. The WalkingPadS1 is an innovative solution that our Texas product design specialist believes is perfect for those who want to stay fit at home while saving space! The foldable mat folds in 180 degrees and works both as a yoga mat and a treadmill. The design of the mat includes a lot of technological features that make it easier to work out and help you keep fit based on your training needs. When finished with your workout, simply fold back the mat and store away until your next workout.
