Designed by Emanuele Pizzolorusso, a young Helsinki based industrial designer, the Crumpled City Map is exactly that- it is made to be crushed ,manhandled and crumpled!. Made of trusty Tyvek®, it’s 100% waterproof and 100% recyclable. Not being able to figure out what's on the fold or crease of a paper map is history! You can squash this map into your pocket, bag or the accompanying pouch in 2 seconds flat without worrying about tearing your map and still be able to make out the details afterwards.
*Refer to theLondonmap for more examples of a crumpled map*

Each City Map comes folded in a box with accompanying carrying pouch
Made of Tyvek® -100% waterproof and recyclable
Map provides details of streets, monuments,galleries and museums, etc. and includes a sightseeing index
Each map also includes 10 "SoulSights" (places of intense emotions that are brought to life by the people passing through or stopping off in them)
Packaging depicts an icon symbol of the city, in this case the black bear.
Point of Interest: The emblem of the bear is apparently a pun on the city's name (Bär meaning Bear), and there have been suggestions that it is a little bear (Bärlein bearing a resemblance to Berlin) source: Wikipedia
