Collapsible: The Genius of Space-Saving Design by Per Mollerup, Chronicle Books

Gadgets galore! Everything from cameras that collapse to keyboards that curl. Murphy beds, folding scooters, portable showersthey're all here. The first ever of its kind, Collapsible is a comprehensive survey of all that breaks down, balls up, pulls apart, and stacks together.

Why collapse? Internationally renowned Danish designer Per Mollerup answers with every imaginable example from the past and present. The inclusion of a Swiss army knife shouldn't come as a surprise, but what about a retractable bulletproof vest, circa 1918? With over 530 illustrations, this book is a must-have for design aficionados and anyone who has an affinity for clever product design. Collapsible is both an ode to ingenuity and an album for inspiration!
