We are pleased to announce that our design of the Simpull Touch™ Cutlery Dispenser was awarded a 2013 Good Design Award – a great ending to 2013! Several thousand of the world’s leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic design firms from over 48 countries entered the competition.
We collaborated with US Foods to develop a proprietary system to dispense plastic disposable cutlery. The system had to provide a hygienic and universal solution that dispenses any combination of forks, knives, and spoons in a single, compact package. Through prototype and CAD development, we were able to identify the ultimate mechanical operation and reduce the material on both the unit and utensils.
The Simpull Touch™ dispenser is a revolutionary design that is significantly changing eating establishment delivery systems and their attention to hygiene. The delivery of individual pieces has proven to reduce cost by reducing waste, as well as maintain an organized and clean environment. A short video of the product’s functionality is below.
