OBJECTIVE

Leftovers. Everyone has them, and everybody stores them somehow. Food storage is dominated by “lid and container” products where the lid can be separated from the container. There is always a struggle to find the right size storage container and lid to fit whatever is being stored. Can we design an innovative housewares product that combines function and flair?

Since cooking and storing leftovers is done by ages of all people, if a container is dropped, the material needs to withstand the impact. Glass can be heavy to lift and easy to shatter. Tupperware and its copies are made from polypropylene, and others also utilize BPA free alternatives.

Storage containers come in many sizes and shapes. This means kitchens must store many containers to ensure that the right size will be available when it is needed.

IDEATION

Collapsible and expandable storage became a driving factor after discovering uses for the idea were being applied in other kitchen-ware products such as colanders and measuring cups.

Using food-grade silicone, the user is able to expand one container into multiple sizes, reducing the number of products they have to store. The container fits your food instead of making your food fit the container, and with the lid always attached, it will never be misplaced or mismatched.
