Japan has a reputation of being an overcrowded country where living space is at a premium, and those who live in big city apartments are painfully aware of the need to maximize every centimeter (0.4 inch) of living space. Products like the ingenious Collapsible Bucket from Dinos are designed to meet that need.
The 38 cm (15.2”) diameter bucket measures 27 cm (10.8”) high when unfolded. When collapsed, however, it's only 4.5 cm (1.8”) high. This makes it easy to store in nooks and crannies, close to where it's most often used. The collapsing feature also comes in handy when packing supplies for a camping trip.
