The tin can is one of the biggest icons from the history of industrial production. It is a simple and convenient product that functions as a container for consumer goods. Like with almost every other product in mass industry there are wonders in its production process.
Examining every step of this specific production process gave design duo Lennart & Lauren insight into a remarkable transformation that impacts the strength and visual appearance of the tangible outcome. In this case, something relatively weak and flexible is transformed into something strong using two simple steps: rolling a thin metal sheet into a round shape combined with pressing lines upon the form.
Connecting these existing techniques with modern tools (3D printed machine parts and different types of lasercut press molds) resulted in a new form language that still breathes the essence of the classic tin can and at the same time intensifies the awareness of the material and the production process.
