The Tilt Advantage

Can 20-degrees make all the difference in design? When it comes to the portable water cooler, then it does. We use these urn-shaped dispensers for serving of drinks such as tea, coffee, and juice; and when the quantity runs low, we automatically tip it forward to get the very last drop. The base of the Tilt 20 urn integrates a chamfer that allows the dispenser to stand at an angle or vertically.

When the dispenser is full, its centre of gravity will allow it to stand vertically with stability. As the volume of liquid decreases, the dispenser can be titled by twenty degrees to rest on the chamfered section of its base. Tilt 20 reduces wastage and makes cleaning the dispenser much easier.

Tilt 20 is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winning entry.

    how did this win a red dot? the tilt gap makes the tap higher than the base of the container, thus making the need to tilt to get all the water out. normal tumblers already have the tap at base of the container, so that when you tilt, the tap will be lower thus allowing all the water to drain.

    this design is solving a problem that it created.

  • Hunter says:

    No, this product is solving one problem by creating a new one.

    Also, with the tilted design, there is a toll on volume capacity, which will decrease product efficiency and value.

    …and stability?

  • Yoori says:

    It is quite hiralious. Good

  • Excursioner says:

    You can solve the same problem by just having the bottom inside the container with a decline directly to the tap. No need to move the container and you can get to the las drop of the liquid inside.
