LIGHT WAVE / Visual Communication


Discipline: Packaging


Discipline: Packaging

Light is magical and the invention of the light bulb has illuminated human life in many ways, yet the packaging design for light bulbs is outdated.
This new design solves several problems related to the currently available packaging for fluorescent lights: for example, aesthetics, function, environmental consideration and safety. The new X-structure design greatly strengthens the cushioning effect and protects the fluorescent light from getting damaged. Also, the color gradient effect and the see-through appearance not only present the quality of fluorescent light itself, but the color can also be used to indicate the light temperature.

This is a completely new, ergonomic design. The packaging protects fluorescent lamps of different sizes. The colors are very nicely combined and reflect the type of lamp. When no longer needed, it can be easily folded up and thrown away. Super idea.
Jury Statement
We’ve never imagined that this work could receive such honor and confirmation. Getting the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016 has given us a feeling you cannot imagine. We’re happy our efforts can now be seen, and we thank our teacher Chien-fang Chang, our team mates and the jury of the IF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD!
