fritz

great idea especially if you are a bedoin
or a freshman college student

Michael Surtees

what a great idea!

Alan

Interesting idea... Is it sturdy? Looks a bit flimsy.

Christopher

Now that's clever, I like it!

bob

Clever, but it's a bit pointless to put such effort into a design when the major feature of that design will be used only rarely in the life-cycle of the item.

Mike

Where can I buy one?

Wait, when something goes on a shelf, it usually stays there -- forever. Other than someone who moves 2 or 3 times a year, this would get unfolded and never refolded again! :-)

This would be great for a business or individual that sets up in a lot of small trade fairs or booths. Not a merchandiser who has tons of product, but a headhunter or marketer who needs to carry all their literature and equipment in their trunk, but could use a little more space than a desktop to set up.

Would you say the same about an airbag in your car? Sometimes it is the least used aspects of a product which make them outstanding. This seems like a concept in the right direction... but could use some tweaks.

Actually, this is a great idea for displaying products for sale at tradeshows.

Andrew Kao

How does the shelf stay open?

Ben

You guys thinking that the collapsing feature would only be used once or twice in a lifetime are discounting the market that it's probably geared towards -- the huge 20-30 something crowd that moves far more often than they would like or expect to. I would have certainly used this collapsing feature at least half a dozen times by now. Cool idea.

I'm going to university in a co-op program, so I'll be moving almost every four months for the next four years, good idea, but still not portable enough for me, I'm from out of province. Good for people with vehicles and permanent residences nearby though.

I'm 32, and I've moved a minimum of once a year since I was 18. the total is now up around 21, I think.

This bookshelf was built for people like me - people with books and far too many moves under their belt.

Joe Wood

Even if you assume people won't move often enough to justify the design, another important implication of it is that vendors can store them in boxes the same size as unassembled furniture, and yet the pieces require, in essence, no assembly on the part of the buyer.

Has anybody bothered to look at the prices? What a joke. I'm all for paying for art, and I'm all for convenience, but they're charging art prices for IKEA quality. Nice try, but no thanks. Anybody who can afford this.

The price list: http://www.thut.ch/preis11.htm


COMMENT BY SWISSMISS: what makes you believe that their furniture consists of IKEA quality? Also, those prices are in swiss francs.

2000 franc = ~$1500 usd
