Accordion / drinking-water container

Accordion
Accordion

Barreled drinking water is consumed in many schools and companies, but it is still problematic. For example, it is too heavy to lift up and the empty barrels also take too much space. Through the design, two handles are added on the top and the bottom respectively. This not only makes it easier to carry, but also makes the users put the barrels on the water dispenser more easily. The idea is from the image of snakes’ belly so that it can be compressed to save space.
