Design: Creation of Artifacts in Society. University of Pennsylvania | Coursera
1. The cord of my computer mouse is all tangled up.
2. My stylus for the iPad has a very thick head.
3. I can not find my cat.
4. There is not enough space on my kitchen counter for all the dishes that have to be done.
5. There are too many steps in hanging up the laundry.
6. I don't have enough space for more hangers, yet I do have to hang more coats. 
7. I have several different bottles in all sorts of shapes/sizes on the floor, I would like a great storage solution, regardless the size.
8. A great website where kids can create their own clothes.
9. I find the carton on the toilet paper roll a waste and bad for the emvironment, I can not flush the toilet-paper down the toilet.
10. I always have to run upstairs before we leave to turn off the light in my daughters room (which she forgot to turn off).
11. The cupholder for my Nespresso cups is ugly and not so functional. 

My GAP:  11. The cupholder for my Nespresso cups is ugly and not very functional.

I own a Nespresso machine, which means you automatically need to buy the capsules / cups. The capsules are delived in a carton box . Each holds 10 capsules. 

I currently have a storage systems for the capsules, which looks a bit like like this. 

My friends all have different ways of storing the capsules either in a jar, in the original carton box, looses in a kitchen drawer and similar systems as mine. They too find the storage systems not very original.

I believe I can think of an artifact that is more appealing and uses the cups in a creative and functional way.
