FREE CUP / Coffee Packaging


Discipline: Packaging

This design uses the method of three-dimensional construction: just press the edge of the packaging and it will form into a cup. The instant coffee powder is included in the cup, just add hot water and shake the cup to make a drink of coffee. The packaging is made from recyclable paper which saves resources. The inner wall features unhazardous PE lining.

This design seems eco-friendly design combines two functions into one factor to reduce waste and also convenient to use due to structural improvement.
Jury Statement
When we heard the news that we had won an iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016, we could hardly believe it. This award encourages us to design more human-centered and useful products.
