K.O.U / Soap packaging

Discipline: Packaging

Discipline: Packaging

K.O.U is a soap blended by veteran fragrance masters to yield a distinctive Japanese bouquet. The packaging draws from cultural elements such as origami folding paper, in which individual sheets of paper are used to fashion an infinite selection of shapes. Each soap, therefore, is wrapped in a single length of paper. This stellar caliber of encasing perfection generates the sensation that the soap is nestled in separate vacuum packs. Accentuating the essential quality of the paper, this pioneering paper box approach is made possible by a deep-draw press-moulding technology engineered to prevent the paper from tearing (patent pending).
