Discipline: Packaging

“Gum Soap” is a new kind of soap that is especially designed for business travelers. During transportation, traditional shampoo and shower gels tend to roll around and leak. They are also difficult to store. After use, ordinary soap is wet and can breed bacteria. “Gum Soap”, on the other hand, is packaged like chewing gum to solve all these problems. Wrapping each piece of soap in aluminum foil, reduces the chances of the soap becoming wet and prevents the breeding of bacteria.

Good idea for travelers for its convenience and hygienic function.
Jury Statement
We were surprised when we heard the good news that we had won the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016 and we almost started crying. There are too many people that we need to acknowledge and say thank you to. So, thank God.
