Pocket AidOfficial name of entry:Pocket AidDesigner(s):Maria Pramberger
The jury were very impressed with this design that helped solve a difficult problem – how to get a plaster quickly, effectively and hygienically. Simply by pushing a thumb along the top of the carton, a single plaster comes out every time without fail. This means no more searching in a handbag or pocket for a loose plaster. This design could easily be adapted for other sizes and is simple to use and easy to carry about. An ideal solution to an annoying problem.
CupholderOfficial name of entry:CupholderDesigner(s):Joseph Rathkolb / Patrick Schiestl
This is a use for cartonboard that the jury had not seen before. The simple one piece construction and the easy way it can be constructed convinced that that this was a very good design. It can easily be hooked onto a car window and then a cup or bottle can to pit in it. It could easily be printed and branded and whilst many cars have built in cup holders, this new design would be ideal for passengers in the back seat of cars. It could easily be adapted to take different sizes of bottles or cups and would, the Jury felt, have very many applications.
