thibault penven, student of ecole cantonale d’art de lausanne (ECAL) in switzerland, has created 'ar-vag'. the design is a folding boat
for a short tour or a fishing trip. the feature of the vessel is that it is faster to assemble than an inflatable dinghy and less cumbersome
than a fixed attachment. the hull consists of a series of fiberglass sheets covered with heat-welded plastic tarpaulin.
to set sail, the user must unfold the thin, light body of the watercraft and make it rigid with the central bench, which functions as
the core, thereby giving it its final shape and making it comfortable. the project was shown as part of the beopen exhibition at the
design miami art basel 2012.
