When working with SOURCE, we were asked to develop an innovative drinking bottle. We chose to focus on and refine the drinking experience itself. Following user research, we decided to redesign the cap and the process of opening and closing it.

Pre-Development

We wanted the bottle to meet two key needsTo have an easy, original method of opening on one hand, and on the other hand, to ensure an airtight seal that could be relied on under any and all circumstancesSort of contradictory requirements just the kind of challenge that made us fall in love with this profession.

Development

Our development staff looked into many options before finally deciding to borrow a technique from the flexible tubing industry that's used for

irrigation connectors. Inspired by that principle, we developed a revolutionary cap that opens and closes with an intuitive "click" motion that includes a small feedback, is easy to use, comfortable to drink from, and, of course, stays hermetically sealed while being carried or transported in any fashion.

Our innovative cap was registered as a SOURCE patent under the name ClickSeal™, and the bottle is currently sold on the global online store in a variety of configurations.
