Injection molded plastic dish rack that can be used on a countertop, in the sink, or over the sink. High capacity dishrack with integrated utensil caddy, cup holders, and knife slots.
This project was limited to a very sharp cost, and had to provide a lot of function for the volume of plastic. Finite element analysis (FEA) was a crucial tool that was used to optimize strength and material usage. Over 20 iterative stress studies were conducted in order to best understand how the dishrack would behave under a full load of dishes when extended over a sink. The final model is representative of the best solution as learned from the FEA studies.
Bridgit Dishrack is manufactured by Umbra and sold as private label in countries around the world.
