Korobok

CHALLENGE

Create a friendly pillbox, easy to refill and carry.

Strategy

In our work, we tried to move away from the uncomfortable feeling of using the pillbox, often associated with the awkwardness of pulling it out in public. We transferred a pillbox from the plane of "medical item" to the plane of an accessory for travel, sports, and an object of everyday life. During the project's research stage, were analyzed various pillboxes and modern wearable accessories. The matchbox form was taken for the basis, whose shape has passed through time and retained its relevance. It allowed to develop several ideas, the best of which formed the base of the Korobok project.

Product

The pillbox has the functionality of an organizer for capsules, vitamins, dietary supplements, and any other prophylactic agents. Its compact size allows it to fit in small purses and pockets. The recess at the top shows the position for easy opening of the pillbox. The opening ergonomics is similar to the matchbox device.

Experience

The pillbox is convenient to use for its unique shape: round shape with a hole on the back, flat on the front side, and a notch at the top. It allows to use the pillbox by touch, without looking, and it is easy to determine the top and the bottom.
