triangular tape / tape

triangular tape

When we use a normal circular shape sellotape, we are constantly bothered by finding the start of tape. To solve this problem, our design adapted a triangular structure.
Every time when you use the sellotape, because of the triangular shape design, you naturally tear off the tape near one of the angle. So when you use the tape next time, you can find the start of the tape easily and quickly. Also our design doesn’t result in any increase of production cost and any decrease of the stability. So let this small redesign bring you a total refreshing user experience.
