The 360 Paper Bottle is a truly innovative packaging from Brandimage, which involved itself in every stage of design including concept development, branding, prototyping, engineering, and product design. The 360 Paper Bottle is the first of its kind in the world, and a true environmentally-friendly solution to the problem of plastic water bottles. The designers’ idea was to design a container that would leverage sustainability, be
easy to transport, and enhance the consumer’s drinking experience. The Bottle is the first fully recyclable paper container made from 100% renewable resources and offers a versatile range of consumer applications as it can stand up to all types of liquids. The Bottle is made from food-safe and fully recyclable materials and decreases energy consumed throughout the product life cycle without sacrificing functionality. Thumbs Up!!

Cardboard Interiors

Posted in interior design with tags , , , on August 22, 2008 by anonimiss

dARCH Studio has designed this amazing retail outlet for Yiorgos Elftheriades’ Yeshop in Athens, whose highlight is a beautifully sculpted display wall installation. The wall is composed entirely of re-purposed packaging cartons and is built around the existing furniture in the space to give a seamless, streamlined effect. 1,500 pieces of 5mm thick corrugated cardboard were cut into strips and pasted along one of the shop walls and were integrated with illuminated built-in boxes to highlight products. The handmade, biomorphic instalation is made using eco-friendly material.

I liked the fluidity of the design and the way it blends with the rest of the space. And the fact that the material is recyclable makes me give it a thumbs-up.
