Better Than Bubble Wrap Says Mother Nature

Better Than Bubble Wrap Says Mother Nature

Plastic bubbles wraps are one of the chief sources of environmental degradation since our world revolves around the packaging and transport of goods. The Paper Wrap offers the same level of protection but at a very neutral cost to the planet. A precut symmetric pattern similar to a steel grate buffers precious goods but I see two faults. One, the flexibility of bubble wrap makes it more usable in a wide array of applications. Two, I can’t pop paper wrap and everyone knows humans have an OCD fascination with popping bubbles.

Fold Out Boxes Add A Bit Of Class To Lunch

Fold Out Boxes Add A Bit Of Class To Lunch

While few lunchtime experiences can best a classic superhero inspired box, these foldout gourmet lunch boxes by Emma smart definitely go the distance. Winning her a D&AD Yellow Pencil in packaging design, the challenge was to categorically separate the boxes while maintaining an overall sense of visual unity. Now if only there were one with a licensed fictional character I could pretend to be during lunch, my life would be complete.

The Freshness of Labels

The Freshness of Labels

Bad meat. There’s nothing nastier. Though the area where I live has a pretty good hold on fresh food packaging and labeling, there’s always some stragglers. According to designer Naoki Hirota, mislabeled food is more than a tiny problem in some shops of the world. Thus, temporal labels are in order.

Or are they?

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

Okay I need to spread the word. A few months ago the OXO company sent me a bunch of their OXO Pop containers for review. I’ve never been one to store things in containers because I only buy enough of anything for immediate use. But things like cereals, rice, and pasta are bulk items. I’ve been on a container storing binge because the OXO Pop containers actually work. Hey, they won the Red Dot 2008 Product Design Award so there’s way more than meets the eye here.

Can't Get Fresher Than This

Can’t Get Fresher Than This

Eco Box is a concept to change the way we ripen, harvest, and deliver fresh fruit. The box is “packaged” around a fruit with plenty of holes for air circulation. The fruit is allowed to ripen this way reaching its full sweet potential. The box protects the fruit from insects and when it’s ready, picked and ready to be sold.

Watch Out! Don't Cut Your Tongue

Watch Out! Don’t Cut Your Tongue

So here’s something different from usual posts. It’s not tech related, not I.D. per say, and tho simple, is plenty difficult to execute. Fragile candy sends a sharp message. I taste good but I’m also bad for you. Mmm no suspended fruit? I demand anything clear must have suspended fruit!

AWKWARD!!!

AWKWARD!!!

Not many things in life can be more embarrassing than being incontinent. No, I don’t mean being in a continent like Australia or Disney World. I mean the loss of control of ones’ bodily waste. It’s a sad reality and should not be something that makes people uncomfortable in any way, but it does. Well to alleviate some of this embarrassment, designer Morgane Franck de Préaumont has created innovative packaging called “Epure”.

Popup Délices (delicacies)

Popup Délices (delicacies)

Fine tableware is a victim to the rhythms imposed by modern society and globalization. Everyone is in a hurry. Time is money and food storage/portability is more important than actually enjoying what you eat slowly.

Champagne Poppin' For Everyone

Champagne Poppin’ For Everyone

Look it’s all about me me me. I don’t want to stand in the back. I want to be center front. I want to be a star. So why is it only one person gets to experience that “oooOo” moment when opening a champagne bottle? Everyone circles around as they hear the distinctive “pop” of cork freeing itself from glass. Why can’t everyone experience this moment?

Elegance on the go...

Elegance on the go…

I don’t know about you guys but I am getting tired of seeing adults walking around with cups of coffee and those silly little sippy cup to-go tops. We are grown ups, can’t we all manage to drink our coffees or teas on the go without spilling it all over ourselves? What are we 6 years old? Laurent Corio has added a little taste of elegance and maturity to a commonly used convenience.
