Simple, logo-driven packaging for a cosmetics company. The most beautiful piece in the collection has to be the wood-capped loose powder container, although there is a lot to be said for the bright white type paired with the matte black packaging (shown after the jump).

Designed by Artek & Comme Des Garçons | Country: Finland
The box, with its slightly textural grey silhouette feels stronger than the bottle itself. Both components strongly echo the work of furniture design shop Artek, who are based primarily in Finland but who have offices worldwide.
“The unisex fragrance was created in line with Artek STUDIO’s brief on combining synthetic and natural elements. The final scent was developed by Christian Astuguevieille, perfume creator at Comme des Garçons. The result is a blend of Finnish Labrador Tea, Twinflower Linnea Borealis, metal and rust in the base notes and fennel, ginger, lemon, musk, saffron and cedarwood in the top notes. The visual aesthetics of the STANDARD fragrance were developed to stand along with Artek’s ideology and existing products. In line with Artek’s design ideology, the scent is created with the ambition to nourish physical and emotional wellbeing.”

The creative use of photography for Superdrug’s Handy Wipes make this product fun and approachable, not to mention that it helps it stand out on shelf in a sea of moist wipe products.

“The fragrance industry spends a lot of money creating beautiful trash in the form of cardboard boxes that look great on a shelf, but are discarded after purchase. So when we developed the packaging for our artisanal fragrances, we sought to combine beauty, function, sustainability and reusability. The result was our signature wooden box with silk lining.

Interesting and lovely design concept sent to us from Andrei D. Popa in Romania.
“Packaging for an imaginary product, men only, called Brisk.
Brisk it’s about hyper-masculine attitudes related to women’s desires and preferences, it’s about skipping the clichés, about style and comfort with no added sugar.”
