The goal was to develop a versatile and compact range of products suitable for various outdoor activities and environments, ensuring user comfort, ease of use, and efficient packing for a wide range of users, while reducing environmental impact through sustainable materials and manufacturing processes.

  • The Passage Range provides a comprehensive solution to the design challenge by offering durable, lightweight, and eco-friendly outdoor kitchenware that appeals to various adventurers. Key design decisions included nesting and stacking capabilities for compact storage, Cool Grip fins for comfortable handling, and the use of BPA-free, glass-reinforced polypropylene for strength and easy cleaning.

The Passage Range not only meets the needs of outdoor enthusiasts but also supports the brand's core values, promoting responsible enjoyment of nature and contributing positively to people and the planet.

  • The Passage Range showcases several key design features that enhance user experience and improve product functionality. One of the standout features is the Cool Grip, fluted ribbed walls on the tableware, which reduce heat transfer and ensure comfortable handling during meals. The Passage cutlery sets boast a unique nesting and clip-together design, allowing users to create extended utensils while maximising space efficiency. The Passage Kitchen Collection emphasises compatibility across products, with consistent diameters for tableware items, enabling common lids and efficient nesting.
