“You might not know if from the outside, but inside the doors of the stately residence at Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp is a home where everything is for sale. Spread across three floors, the homey boutique brings together a curated world of fashion, furniture, jewelry, and design objects, from producers ranging from established houses to cutting-edge designers. On the first floor there’s a flexible space for exhibitions and presentations. A restaurant serves up the culinary creations of renowned chef Seppe Nobels, while an outdoor terrace cafe gives visitors a place to relax with a glass of Champagne. Co-founders Ilse Cornelissens and Tim Van Geloven live on the top floor with their son and their dog George. Says Ilse, “Our home, in a way, is open to everyone.”

A simple hand-printed canvas bag is a great reusable packaging option to organize and store items that are part of a collection, like these stamps.

Designed by Construct | Country: United Kingdom
“London design studio Construct has given the branding of London’s famous Claridge’s hotel a thorough overhaul. Because it is a working hotel with a huge number of items traditionally branded (from teapots and egg cups through to slippers and dressing gowns), Construct’s task of not just branding, but implementing a consistent and cohesive sense of identity throughout the hotel and the objects within it was by no means straightforward. In fact, the rollout of the new branding is ongoing throughout this year as there are so many different ideas to implement across a huge range of items.
As well as introducing a sophisticated colour palette of jade, gold, white and black, bold architecturally inspired chevron patterns appear on the inside of bags, envelopes and on various objects, publications and goodies guests at the hotel are lilkely to encounter.”

ILoveDust’s Southsea office is located in a former butcher’s shop, so it’s only fitting that they created their self promo around the idea of “choice cuts” and packaged it to look like fresh wrapped meat.

Designed by Bulldog | Country: Malta
“Over the years, our company has been very comfortable with presenting a witty face to the world – from our choice of name to the imagery that people associate with Bulldog.
We developed this visual pun to commemorate our 20th anniversary on February 10th, 2010. The piece fuses a crossword puzzle with our logo to create a playful visual shorthand for what Bulldog has done over the last 20 years.

Designed by Sruli Recht | Country: Iceland
Very unique packaging from Iceland’s Sruli Recht. The packages are constructed from corrugated cardboard and then appear to be either stained or painted in a process that looks to be applied by hand. His products within the packages are equally as unique.
