Umbra Paper Towel Holder Challenge

Medium

Design a FRESH and ORIGINAL paper towel holder for UMBRA

Every kitchen needs a Paper Towel Holder but not all holders are created equal. What will make your design an exception?

Some things to keep in mind…

o must be easy to dispense
o paper towel roll size 11” x 5.75”diameter | tube 1.625” diameter
o it could be a tabletop or mounted holder
o stands out through its simplicity and functionality
o aesthetics and specifications to be consistent with Umbra design language and brand
o easy to manufacture, assemble, package, distribute, and market
o feel free to explore new materials and mechanisms
o concept to fit a modern home – typically used in the kitchen. Consumers would most likely be female adults although the users would consists of both females and males.

Is your design the next big Paper Towel Holder after our highly successful series of one-handed paper towel holders?

About Umbra

Umbra was born over 30 years ago when a graphic designer by the name of Paul Rowan couldn’t find a nice window shade to hang in his new apartment window. So, he made one. And others liked it! He soon teamed up with friend Les Mandelbaum...and Umbra was born. It was from this first product that Umbra got its name - ‘umbra’ means ‘shade’ in Latin. Since that time, Umbra has grown to become the world leader of modern, original, casual and affordable design for the home, introducing designs that have broken the mold and creating entirely new categories in the home decor and gifting market.

Umbra’s products are available at over 30,000 retailers in more than 90 countries.

    I think this is a great challenge; a simple product allowing multiple levels of skill and design to enter and compete. Outside the challenge prizes, being recognized for finishing as a finalist, or winning the whole sha-bang could land anybody their next big client.

    Only a narrow vision would focus on just the monetary gain of a single challenge; all these challenges have "bigger pictures" to them; only a matter of applying yourself to the task at hand and stunning the competition.

    I wish everyone the best of luck... and I'll see you in the entries soon :)

    @Kamyar and @Petar This Challenge is a bit different. Umbra is offering royalties and the chance to get your design into production along with your name attached, as well as the cash award. That is what people have been asking for and we're happy to be able to offer it with this one.
    ...
    Thanks @Josh and @Jonathan!

    Jonathan 9 months ago

    Ya, I'm not sure if people understand what a royalty is.....when you figure it out, you'll realize how much of a big deal getting royalties can be, it's basically like winning the lottery, especially if the product goes viral!!!!! a small percentage over a large number = potentially a lot of money. And for Umbra to offer this to not only 1 winner but potentially to multiple designers.......this is a HUGE opportunity people! I'm very greatful.

    sorry for being a litlle bitt negative, yes I know what royalties are, I am not stupid.
    but do you people know what word ,,POTENTIALLY,, means, nobody says that winners entries will be produced for sure.
    I predict more than 700 entries and there are prizes for top 10, that s realy nice!
    and yes I know, you are all here not to win but to enjoy challange, learn something new, compete, and a lot more not important reasons. :)

    Really like this challenge, been making concepts for this around work commitments. I am pleased with my designs but wish I had more time around my work schedule to do some nice professional renders. I hope it is the product which is chosen for it's design rather than a fancy render.

    Also, thanks to @jonathan for the kitchen roll model. very helpful indeed

    Tommy Mueller 9 months ago

    Hey Andy, I downloaded a few of your images and parts; all viewable and work just fine localaly on my computer (and they look like nice desigsn too)

    I would try uploading a new image for just one of your designs; one image at a time. step by step, again :).

    If that doesn't work, try uploading a PNG image as opposed to a JPG. There's sometimes an oddity in web programming that conclifts with UPPERCASE (.JPG) & LOWERCASE (.jpg) extensions

    Perhaps one of these solutions will improve your visibility.
    Beyond that, contact a GrabCAD staff member immediately to resolve your issue.

    Hope it helps!.
