The title might sound ridiculous, but think about what happens when you’re painting. You’re pouring the paint out of the bucket into a small tray, which you use to evenly distribute the paint over your roller. The pouring process is always messy and the tray has to be cleaned afterwards. Dutch design company Flex came up with a solution for Flexa (a Dutch paint brand): a paint bucket of which the lid becomes the tray. So no need to pour the paint and no cleaning afterwards; you just close the lid. Even a mundane product category as paint offers possibilities to improve user friendliness; as was also proven earlier on with the easy-white paint by Histor.
