Flip-Box / Foldable insulation box

Flip-Box

Discipline: Material

Discipline: Material

Flip-Box is the first insulated box, which was designed foldable for the ability to reduce volume. Design and functionality are based on the idea of linking the divided lid through innovative hinges, whose pivots are located outside the box and through this allow a volume reduction of 60%. Flip-Box consists of seven parts. Grips and joints are integrated into the walls, which allows an easy assembly and as mono-material easy recyclability. The design of the box is characterised by the likable hinges and the combination of two colors. The imprints caused by nozzle holes needed in the production procedure, are integrated into the design for the first time.
