Carey Mulligan: Carey, Carey, Quite Contrary - W by Michael Thompson, January 2012
‘folding boat’ is a seamless folding, leisure boat made from a standard sheet of plastic which can be assembled in a relatively short period of time. ‘folding boat’ was developed after a paper-folding workshop in which systems of creating various forms out of a single piece of material were introduced.
The main advantages of the product are transportation, storage and assembly. Ideal for one or two people, ‘folding boat’ can be used in the urban environment (canals, ponds and lakes). Suitable for fisherman and campers, it also has the potential to be dispatched during disaster relief scenarios such as floods. ‘folding boat’ includes two cushions and two oars.
