These collapsible design examples range from the space-saving to the futuristic. Whether clearing room in a compact home or revolutionizing modern construction practices, these products and concepts are changing the way one thinks about design.

This vast catalog of collapsible design finds includes designer Eric Stoddard's Zoomla, a folded bike that can be folded in a time period of 2 seconds. The product is designed with students in mind and allows one to store their bike within their school locker.

Another impressive example from this list includes James Plant's collapsible Private Dining set design. At first glance, this plain cabinet resembles a traditional closet and is "opened to reveal a dining set with table, benches and extra seating."
