Folding Star / Folding square box

Discipline: Packaging

Our task was to develop a packaging concept that could be assembled by a machine, was of a shape that hadn't been used before, and could automatically adapt to the volume of material it was holding. Using diagonal slits, a pre-assembled, mechanically produced, foldable square box is able to adapt to different volumes. By changing the straight, diagonal slits to a concave or convex alignment, a softer shape can be developed and a slit window can be harmoniously introduced. The easy to use, re-sealable opening mechanism is the finishing touch on
this packaging concept.
