ONAK is somewhat like an origami: it can be folded and unfolded continuously. ONAK is a foldable and portable canoe that measures 4.6 metres and weighs 17 kilograms. It reconciles urban dwellers with nature, allowing them to take it wherever they want for a ride along canals or white-water canoeing down river rapids. Conceived by a designer and an engineer, using an innovative and highly resilient material, ONAK won the biggest local prize for best business plan Bizidee 2016. It was then exhibited all summer at the Design museum of Ghent. It is currently being produced and the first model will be available as of March 2017. That being said, you will of course be able to pre-order it at the Market!
ONAK project was funded thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign: the project raised more than 235.000€ on Kickstarter !
