Pop-up Linen wardrobe by Renate Nederpel folds flat for easy transportation
This wardrobe by Dutch designer Renate Nederpel is made from fabric panels that fold flat when its wooden poles are removed.
The soft foldable Pop-up Linen cabinet sits atop high pinewood legs, that cross through the fabric structure to hold it in place.
Renate Nederpel integrated creases into the top, bottom and side panels – along with extra flaps of material at the corners – so that the front and back can be pushed together and the whole piece lays flat.
Four large poles form the main structure and the legs of the cabinet, slotting through holes in the fabric. Smaller sticks span between these legs to hold up the base of the padded linen box.
Another thinner wooden element slots between the two sides where the large poles cross to form a clothes rail.
The front features two doors with wooden knobs that swing open to reveal the storage space and internal structure.
Nederpel created the wardrobe "to be produced and transported efficiently". She also designed a smaller version of the cabinet that can act as a side table.
The piece was presented during the Blickfang Designworkshop at Domaine de Boisbuchet in France last week, where Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs was one of the curators.
