Wow, that was quick! Love at first sight? Thanks a lot!
LOVE IT TOO!! =D
Woooow, this is a really beautiful rectangular and clean shape Carsten!!! :)
Honestly, it is love at first sight! :))
I like the proportion between full and empty parts. I like how and where you placed the Coca-Cola logo.
Instead, I don't like the wood look from the last slide. Make it white with red logo text and it will have a sophisticated minimal look which will fit very well with the simple shape. And also don't forget to make it stackable.
Fantastic work Carsten and I'm looking forward to see your next steps! :))
Good luck man!
I forgot to say that I also like that you used a small amount of material :)
Good luck with rest of the project!
Thanks a lot Alexandru. I appreciate your extensive feedback. I will do a white version soon, but I must say that I think the liquid wood style wood work very well to me, because the simple shape resembles a wooden crate that was used in the old days. Also, the organic fibre would make the crate more rigid without using more material. The crate has a bottom that fits into the top, so it already is easy to stack. I will upload a stacking detail. Thanks again!
Your welcome Carsten! :)
oK! I think it's interesting then to use liquid wood. I thought at first it's natural wood, reason why I doubt it. Thanks for explanations!
This links like it might be rather unstable when stacked. It could use some lateral bracing.
I am aware about the stability issue. It would be very easy to enhance by (hidden) connecting the open corners. Problem is that the open corners are an essential design element of the crate, so I didn't want to do it yet. I believe with the right material (organic fibres) it will be stable enough to easily hold 6 bottles of Coke. But I will play with other reinforcement options as well. Thanks for your comment.
I agree that it can easily hold 6 bottles. I'm referring to when your crates are stacked 15-high (three pallets of 5-high each). There will be a tendency to bend.
Very nice clear shape, but it is not associated with the wave Coca Cola. But I love the last picture.
Thanks Elina, I will do a redesign that might fit better to the Coke wave.
This is very nice! If you solve the stacking issue, it will be perfect!
Thanks Kijedi, it actually is easy to stack, will have to show some details illustrating it.
Very interesting -but as so often, I see a problem with stackability and handles.
Thanks a lot for the interest and please check for updates probably next week. I will do some redesigning.
I also like the idea! Maybe smoother edges would make it easier to handle? I know it might not look as nice, but would be practical. But please keep going!
I will thanks for the encouragement.
Looking forward to see details :-) And think about the feedback the Jury members proposed!
working on it! Please check next week since I am pretty busy at the moment.
Really nice shape and renderings! 9*
Thanx a lot, Bogdan!
Nice shape. What about the benefit for the environment?
Nice, but I think it's not Coke style!
Nice one I like this
nice, but ...I missed a lot a Handle . You can mantein the original shape and with this the handle could be simple and usefull.
thanks JohnnyU2. What kind of handle do you miss? One in the middle? Yes, this could have been a good addition. But apart from that, I think the open shapes of the outside make a great handle on all four sides.
This project deserve more attention and higher rate, it is a very interesting solution
Great Job! Good Luck!
This is a very good design! I´m amazed ;D
