SteaDY / funnel

As the awareness of energy-saving rising, the use of environmentally friendly refill packs becomes more prevalent. But the reloaded container might be easily knocked over during the rebottling process because of its lightweight. This funnel design is inspired by the shape of calla. The wave-shaped edge creates a space to guarantee the air would exchange with the flowing liquid. As a result, the liquid flow smoothly and quickly. Most of important, the axis of this funnel can alter the center of gravity so that it will be steadier during the rebottling process, and let the liquid down along the axis, preventing it from splashing.
