The Collapsible 3-in-1 Bucket from Colapz provides users with a product that enables them to carry, store and dispense water.

When in use it is a flexible and dynamic product with attachments that convert a bucket into a watering can and water dispenser. When not in use its clever lid and collapsible walls allows you to condense an otherwise bulky product into a conveniently small space.

PROBLEM

Colapz approached Salsus Design Ltd to deliver a developed concept that they could then take forward for manufacturing development and product launch for their new 3-in-1 system concept. Developing a lid system which could house all the separate component parts was a significant challenge as there is only limited space within the buckets diameter. The design process was also very fluid and creative between the two companies. This meant that our 3D CAD models had to be as responsive and flexible as possible to quickly meet our clients’ needs for presentation and eventually export.

SOLUTION

The final product has different elements which are as a result of the creative process shared between the two companies and the developed concept presented to Colapz. The lay out of the parts on the lid allows for everything to be stored within the buckets footprint. Further ancillary parts came to market because of the concept and prototype stages of this project. This included the “Replacement Tap Washer” which, unlike previous versions, retains itself effectively within the tap sub-assembly to prevent loss and improve user experience. It also included the foldable bucket stand which allows you to raise the bucket above a surface to effectively dispense water.
