STEADY / funnel

STEADY
STEADY

As the rising of energy-saving awareness, the use of refill packs becomes more prevalent. Generally, the reloaded container is small and lightweight but the refill pack is so heavy that we have to use both hands to hold it. In that way, the container might be easily knocked over during the refill process.
The STEADY is inspired by the shape of calla. The stem of the funnel can alter the center of gravity of the system so that it will become steadier during the refill process. Moreover, the liquid can flow down quicker along the stem. On the other hand, the wave-shaped edge creates vents to let the liquid can be refilled smoothly and quickly.
