Polyhedral Roundup: Folding Cartons


A roundup of Polyhedral shaped folding cartons, after the jump.

I’ve been intending for a while to do a little survey of recent polyhedral packaging. Sylvain Allard, in his Packaging UQAM blog, shows a great affinity for geometric solutions to packaging problems. So it seems fitting to start with something from there.

1. Laurence
Gregoire’s proposed chocolate packaging, above, features a triangular
package that unwinds into a string of 10 connected prism-shaped boxes.
It’s a sort of fractal pack since the shape of each part is similar to the whole. (And the logo looks like the second iteration of a Sierpinski triangle.)


2. New Zealand-based Steph Baxter’s proposed “recycled tissue” packaging is reminiscent of some recent triangular Kleenex boxes.
Except that, in her design, the prism-shaped boxes are tied together in
a hexagonal set of six. Also: her graphics tell a 6-panel story about
recycled paper.


3. Diego Hodgson’s dual Bon O Bon package is based—not on prisms—but on antiprisms. Two square antiprisms are combined to form a hinged dual-package—with each side containing a different flavor of candy. (See also: Nerds)


4. Nescafe display packaging by Alberto Vasquez of igen Design and Éva Sümegi & Richard Nagy of Co&co Communication: cube-shaped carton unfolds into a triangular (prism-shaped) POP display.
