Utifold by Kevin Chen MDes '20 and Yike Liu MDes '20
Utifold is a crowdfunding product delivery by K&K Lab that aims to provide dine-out users with a portable, reusable, and functional plastic utensil set, improving their carrying and using experience. The design of Utifold was inspired by Origami, a traditional Japanese craft, folding a two-dimensional surface to create a three-dimensional structure. By applying the property of Origami, Utifold allows users to carry a fully functional set of utensils that are only 5mm thick while maintaining the same durability of traditional utensil design. The flat design also allows users to clean their utensils with one wipe after eating. The product is made in food safe polypropylene, allowing Utifold to keep its recyclability while maintaining its durability and lightness.
With the idea of “bring your own cutlery” (BYOC), we can create a more sustainable environment. Utifold aims to change people’s perspective on portable utensils. Having a more sustainable life doesn’t mean having to compromise with convenience and style.
