Seat•Bucket / Seat•Bucket


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

An innovative redesign of the traditional bucket, this product is not only a container for water but also functions as a stool. The multifunctional aspect helps to save resources and the product is also affordable for people on low incomes.
The Seat•Bucket also provides a space-saving solution for people who live in small spaces.

Very interesting and nice designed concept for a combined seat and bucket which could be helpful in many different usage scenarios. The Seat-Bucket could be produced at a low price, e.g. from recycled plastics.
Jury Statement
Design provides me with a great way of thinking, which helps to identify and solve those tricky problems in life. If I'm honored to have the chance to bring more comfort to people's lives, I owe it to the value of design itself.
