Natural Luxury

Extremely elegant colouring scheme and perfect choreography when opening and closing: only very few packs express the value of their contents so distinctly. The focus is on aesthetics which reflect the technological advance and uniqueness of the brand. The concept’s central idea is based on “organic” opening according to the principles of nature – like a fruit or blossom.
The sound effect comes as a surprise and rounds off the experience perfectly: when closing the lid, the product is covered with an audible click and is kept safe at the same time. The sound of the magnetic fastener highlights the unique feeling of holding something precious in your hands, something that is both durable and sustainable.
The natural harmony of this composition can only be realised with cartonboard. The reactions of customers with an affinity for design were extremely positive. Its uniqueness makes this carton a powerful positioning aid in this luxury segment as well as offering superior presentation options.

Jury comments

This is a carton that was a joy to interact with. Whilst the feel of the carton in-hand was lovely and smooth here was a carton that really impressed the judges on opening as it opened with a flip top where the rest of the pack opened beautifully and partway down the corner to reveal the product. The ace was the audible ‘click’ sound that the pack made when closed and the flip top closing almost spring-like. When several senses can be engaged, including sound then that makes for a very interesting consumer pack.
