Turning Tab / Drink Can

Turning Tab
Turning Tab

Discipline: Packaging

Discipline: Packaging

Users often break a nail or suffer from scratches when trying to open a standard drinks can. This can is designed for easy opening. The edge of the can is set at an angle. When the tab is turned and put on the high point of the edge, the can is opened automatically. Also, it makes the beverage easy to drink because the lower part of the edge is flush with the opening in the can.

This design tries to find a problem through customer observation, proposes solutions by innovative idea and improves user convenient.
Jury Statement
Receiving the prestigious iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016 is a great honor, suggesting I have done something significant as a designer.
