iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

This product design succeeds in integrating a practical funnel function into the can without sacrificing the ability to pour and seal. This product has two states. When the spout is unfolded inwards it forms a concave funnel. The increase in the area of the mouth is conducive to pouring liquid into the can. When the liquid (e.g., water or cooking oil) needs to be poured out, the spout can be retracted. This product can be injection molded, which helps to minimize production costs.

This is a really clever and simple design, a wonderful innovation for people who rely heavily on reusable water and oil containers.
