Structural Packaging: Kitchen Wrap

  • Assignment
    Create a structural package for an existing item using extruded sheet plastic. In order to help solve the problem of an unorganized kitchen drawer, I designed a dispensing system for plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and assorted sized kitchen bags.
     
    Solution
    The roll of product sits inside a triangular structure with two end caps. The contents are dispensed through a thin opening with blade to easily cut the product to the desired size. A protective flap covers the blade for safe storage.
     
    A common problem when using competitor’s products is the ripped edge of the product falls into the box after use, making it difficult to retrieve. This is why the end caps on either side of the structure have a small opening, which allows the user to insert a finger to twist the inside roll in order to re-claim the torn edge.
