PRESS-PAT / paper shredder


By changing the operating mode, it solves the problem that traditional shredders’ off and standby status is difficult to distinguish. This shredder takes the entire top surface as an open button. When the top surface inclines, it shows off status. When it is pressed to level, the shredder works.
When it is off, the sense of instability caused by inclined top surface reminds users that shredder does not work, it visualizes the off status maximally. When the top levels, the shredder turns into working and be ready to shred. And the bottom half is used to bloom shredded paper, it can be removed for cleaning.
