Space is becoming more and more of an issue as architects continue to design more compact homes for cities with growing populations, yet creations like the Pop-up Tableware could make this transition much easier to bear. It is a flat-packed collection of dishes and cutlery that easily pack up when not in use.
Designed by See Yew Siang for this year's Red Dot Design award, the Pop-up Tableware is incredibly clever. Complete with a placemat, the forks and knives simply need to be bended just like the bowl itself in order to turn into three dimensional objects capable of spearing and cutting food.
The Pop-up Tableware is also undeniably environmentally friendly. Although it only received an honorable mention from the Red Dot Design award, Pop-up Tableware could still make quite the impact.
