Young Designer Winners and Finalists
La Papp window blinds
“My aim was to reduce plastic materials in products and let them benefit from the flexibility of carton. Since they normally look all the same, I came up with the idea of redesigning lamella window blinds. It was possible to make a variety of individual designs with the help of printing machines and laser cutters, so that every window was given its final touch.”

Fun to eat
A takeaway carton for fried food or snacks – a new solution for consuming the food and sauce together. There are two containers in a single package, using minimum glue or other adhesives – important for manufacturing and using resources effectively. The product can be erected with one gentle move.
Ideal for festivals, this carton meets a need. It is very simple to execute. The jury loved it because of its pure cartonboard engineering – a professional solution that we’d not seen before.

“We wanted to think sustainability all the way from production, to use and recycling, to rule out plastic, but also to reduce the product waste. We thought a lot about the target market and how the world looks around us, to find a concept that would attract them. This Award is a fantastic opportunity to meet new contacts and to learn more about carton solutions.“
An innovative idea, professionally executed, that will stand out on the shelf because of its impressive presentation of the product – with great branding potential. The concept is highly sustainable and shows a lot of in-depth work, a complete piece of work, totally, even holistically thought through.
KnickerboxersOfficial name of entry: Knickerboxers
Designer(s): Emanuel Moser
MinimalisticA simple, functional and sustainable packaging for underwear that tells the consumer all they need to know about the product at first sight. Knickerboxers are a new, simple, sustainable and functional packaging for underpants. The carton holds two pairs of underpants and is folded into the specific form of the garments it contains. Cut-outs in the packaging immediately show the consumer what is important: colour, form and fabric of the content. A frame inside the carton holds the underpants in place and assures that they cannot slip out of the box. The simple, minimalistic design stands out and shows what you need to know at first sight.
The construction perfectly matches the content and creates added value. The unisex branding delivers a premium presentation and is simply fun.

Spicy“Anytime with me” is a small portable pack for salt and pepper. It is very convenient whenever you need them for lunch, picnics and so on. You can use this pack by opening it like a match box in order to avoid spilling the contents in your bag by accident. The pack has a unique shape, like an hourglass.
A good solution that can be taken anywhere and works really well.

A neat concept for feeding birds with a notable reduction in material. Handling is intuitive, the carton transforms automatically. The construction could be used for multiple purposes.
HappinateOfficial name of entry: Happinate
Designer(s): Birgit Zuckerhut
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.orgThe idea was to take care of all the children out there who have always been scared of getting vaccinated. A cover for different syringes should distract children and give them a little smile, so that they stop thinking of any pain or any bad experiences with injections. The name “Happinate” is composed of the words “happy” and “vaccinate”. That is exactly what the product stands for.
A very innovative concept – a well disguised treatment. The ”less is more“-concept opens a whole field of creativity.
