STRAW PAK / Drink Packaging


Discipline: Packaging

Discipline: Packaging

Many drinks come in Tetra Pak cartons because it’s cheap and convenient. To drink from a Tetra Pak, you need a straw, which is usually attached to the outside of the Tetra Pak and can therefore be easily damaged or removed. In addition, as the straw is made of plastic and covered with vinyl for hygiene reasons, it represents a waste of resources. With Straw Pak, both the straw and the Tetra Pak are made from one piece of paper. As here the straw isn’t easily lost or damaged and doesn’t require any extra materials, it saves both resources and space.

An interesting design even when being simple!
Jury Statement
We are Korean product designers and we have used a piece of paper to design drink packaging with an integrated straw, going through a number of packaging studies. We hope to have this opportunity again. Thank you.
