Capture what’s moving the world. Visualize what’s shaping people’s outlook on life right now. That’s 'boxes'. Our translation of current trends into packaging design. Outside, sustainably timeless, versatile, reusable. Inside, four radically different designs – and yet everything fits together seamlessly. Packaging and explanation. Cause and effect. Sense and purpose. Our interpretation of an age in which the details have a lot in common. What? Unbox, touch, read.
To save material we created the outside box to be used directly for mailing.
We added a simple white label with black print and TTR gold lettering on the ‘boxes’. We left an open area, where you can personally add the customer address.
We made 1,200 boxes this year and thanks to the TTR application we individualized each box by counting and showing the customer that this is a limited edition. The customer can see which s/he received e.g., 125th out of 1,200.
