In Their Own Words: Oscar Bonilla Jr. & Andrew Luba, Developers of the Minimal Water Bottle

In Their Own Words: Oscar Bonilla Jr. & Andrew Luba, Developers of the Minimal Water BottleOscar Bonilla Jr. and Andrew Luba are two product designers and entrepreneurs from Toronto, Canada. They have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for their Minimal Water Bottle, a product that puts a spin on the classic bottle. The MWB is a flexible bottle that, when emptied, can be stored very easily, as it folds with ease. This way, you will not only save space, but also be eco-friendly.

Because we always love to learn more about products that will change our lifestyle and enjoy discovering innovative designs and technology, we've asked the guys a few questions about the Minimal Water Bottle.

Here is our interview:

Attire Club: What's the process of developing the Minimal Water Bottle like? How did you come up with the idea and how was it developed?

In Their Own Words: Oscar Bonilla Jr. & Andrew Luba, Developers of the Minimal Water Bottle
The process behind developing our water bottle has been an awesome journey. From the idea to the tangible product in hand, it has been a full lesson in creative stamina! The idea arose from being unsatisfied with what was available in the market. Therefore, we did our best to design and fill the gap we saw. So, we took to the white board, and started formulating a bottle that did more than any other bottle out there! We wanted a bottle that could accompany its owner with anything/anywhere, a design that didn't get in the way because of the size /what the body was composed of, a product that could last a very long time, and most importantly, environmentally friendly. The MWB was born.

AC: What makes the Minimal Water Bottle unique?

In Their Own Words: Oscar Bonilla Jr. & Andrew Luba, Developers of the Minimal Water Bottle
Using a firestarter to hold the bottle together when rolled up changes the game. We're mixing fire and water, which is fun, and makes a great survival tool too! It's a very capable bottle that can hold all sorts of liquids, is extremely pliable and light due to the nature of silicone, and looks pleasing to the eye... which we think is pretty important if we plan for people to use this bottle everywhere they go.

AC: How did you prepare your Kickstarter project?

Blood, sweat, and tears. OK, no blood. Mostly we just put in a ton of time taking good photos and making a nice video to show everyone what the MWB is capable of! So far, people love it and that only motivates us more in creating awesome products!

AC: What are some situations when the Minimal Water Bottle comes handy?

In Their Own Words: Oscar Bonilla Jr. & Andrew Luba, Developers of the Minimal Water Bottle
The MWB is super handy when traveling, exploring, camping, working out, and so much more. We want people to do it all with the MWB and it has been created to do so! We've found it really great to travel with. It's tiny when collapsed, so you can put it in your carry-on and fill it up after security. When you're done drinking, you can put it back in your bag - or put 15 in your bag, there's definitely enough space! There is really no limit in what the MWB can't or can do, and we love that.

AC: What other products do you wish to develop?

We have a lot of ideas! We want to design products that reduce our impact on the environment. We're really trying to create innovative solutions to reduce waste and energy use, and look forward in developing them!
