  • Patent number: 11993416
    Abstract: The invention relates to a container (1), preferably a bottle, which extends along a main axis (A) and comprising a wall forming a neck portion (2), a shoulder portion (3) connected to the neck portion (2), a body portion (4) connected to the shoulder portion (3), the body portion (4) comprising a grip portion (7), and a base portion (5) forming the bottom of the container (1) and connected to the body portion (4). The grip portion (7) comprises, over at least the majority of its dimension along the main axis (A), a plurality of spiral ribs (13) formed by the wall of the container (1) and spiralling in parallel around the main axis (A). The spiral ribs drastically increase side stability, compression and twisting deformation resistance of the container, while they have a non-technical and appealing appearance.
