XO Tape / Tape Dispenser

XO Tape
XO Tape

The form of the XO Tape dispenser is inspired by the crossing of roads to create an intersection. The dispenser is designed for optimum functionality, and minimal use of energy and material in manufacturing and packaging. XO Tape consists of two identical injection-molded plastic (polystyrene) parts and a roll of tape. It is easy to assemble for use, and easy to disassemble for reloading with new tape, or for recycling. Manufacturing is simplified because the two parts are minimal shapes, using less material than a common single-use tape dispenser. Video: https://vimeo.com/57071471
