Accordion Design

Products that can be crumpled and collapsed to fit into compact spaces

Thus, designers are increasingly focusing their efforts on the design of collapsible products for easier storage. While recent years have seen a rise in foldable creations, these collapsible designs take on more of an accordion aesthetic, in which items can be twisted, folded and crumpled into incredibly compact sizes.
