KEEGO team

June 2016

On a hike up Hochkönig, an idea is born from a problem... For reasons of focus and hygiene most sports require the use of a squeezable bottle, yet nobody seems to like the taste of such bottles, because they are all made of plastic. So when it comes to the essential subject of hydration, why should we sacrifice purity and good taste for mere functionality?

Pictures taken that day!

October 2016

Spending countless hours at trade fairs, looking for solutions in materials and possible technologies...

November 2016

From alloys, elastic and metallic glas to complicated pump systems, origami structures, hydroforming, deep drawing and creative welding – for one or the other reason none of these technologies seem to be quite the right solution for the challenge at hand.

 

May 2017

Breakthrough... Having found a partner of development in the University of Leoben (Austria), first tests regarding the layering-technology bring positive results and Titanium is the material of choice!

August 2017

Another proof of concept. This time from Denmark. Layering does in fact work for the production of a sports bottle.

September 2017

Working on the design because technology alone is never enough.
