Create a compact bin that could be clipped to a table to encourage customers in restaurants and cafés to dispose of small items such as condiment wrappers, tissues and packaging.
Duku carried out concept development and CAD work to explore the appearance, size and functionality of the bin. In particular we focused on how best to fix the bin to tables, whilst also creating an easy to remove lid and bin.
A range of prototypes were created, initially to test overall form, function and the assembly of the product, before presentation prototypes of the finalised design were used to demonstrate the product in a range of colours and finishes at a trade show to generate interest in the product and initial orders.
Following this, a production quotation stage was undertaken to establish mass production tooling and unit costs for the product. At this stage a range of materials were explored for the final product to ensure its suitability to both indoor and outdoor environments.
