Measurable Floss / Floss Design Concept

Measurable Floss
Measurable Floss

The common daily problem people face in using existing floss is the difficulty to control it and the right length of floss to be used. Therefore, it leads to extra waste of floss easily. The concept is to redesign a physical package and visual cue to help measure and use the suitable length of floss intuitively. Unlike the traditional round-shaped holder, the octagon one not only slows down the process of taking out the floss but also indicates the unit of the floss that is to be applied. The floss with added blue color on the nodes also helps people know the length they need to use.
