Redesigning The Modern Egg Carton [Pics]
The Hex-Egg-On by designer Gil Rodrigues consists of triangular boxes that can be folded up into a hexagonal shape.
Portuguese design student Gil Rodrigues redesigned the traditional egg container by doing away with styrofoam or plastic and the usual bulbous shape and instead used cardboard and a hexagon shape.
The Hex-Egg-On is a compact egg carton that consists of six triangular egg boxes that can be folded up into a hexagonal design. Each triangular box is like a self-contained pyramid that acts as individual storage and cushion for an egg. The individual boxes can also be removed once they are empty to make the hexagon even more compact.
