Ripple

Team Project | 3 Weeks | 2021

A small-batch natural dishwashing tray set, designed, crafted, and sell at Upenn IPD product trade show

​Ripple is a natural dishwashing solution inspired by Japanese Zen gardens and the flow of water. As users scrub the sponge against the mountain of soap, it will gradually erode. Excess water will flow along the grooves and drain into the sink. By replacing the need for dishwashing liquid, ultimately Ripple aims to reduce plastic waste.

 

The goal of this project was to design and fabricate 24 identical products and sell at the Upenn IPD product trade show
