44 Examples of Flat Pack Products

From Snap-Together Desk Lighting to Flat Packed Sunglasses

— January 14, 2015 — Eco
As the world continues to get smaller and people become more confident purchasing items online, the need for flat pack products is crucial. Or at least designs that are easy and environmentally friendly to ship. Not to mention that flat pack products ensure that costs are lowered on the manufacturer's side of the equation as well since it puts some of the hard work in the hands of the consumer.

Although flat pack products are mostly seen in the furniture industry thanks to giants such as Ikea, the idea of compact packaging and products are extending to other industries. From flat pack sunglasses to sewing machines and even tablet stands, the creativity displayed when it comes to ensuring material goods are responsibly packaged and shipped around the world.
