A Swedish furniture designer named Gillis Lundgren is credited with the invention of flat pack furniture. According to his employer - Swedish furniture giant IKEA-Lundgren was bringing home a table one day and decided to take the legs of the table off so that it would fit in his car, to reattach them at home. He realized that it could potentially be convenient to sell furniture in a flat packed form, so he brought the idea to his employers, who ran with it, producing the earliest flat packed furniture in the 1950s.
