Mireia Gordi i Vila's Flexible Packaging Suspends Bespoke Items

'Fragile' is an aptly named flexible packaging system developed by Mireia Gordi i Vila, a graduate of the Royal College of Art. There are tons of packaging designs out there that are designed to be biodegradable, modular and reusable, but Fragile puts its focus on containing any kind of object, especially those that are oddly shaped and delicate.

Packaging for Fragile encases in a membrane-like cocoon, surrounded by a hard shell frame for support. Since the stretchy packaging conforms to fit whatever it contains, it is reusable for a number of objects. The second skin that Fragile provides could be used to ship valuables like art and other bespoke items that require a secure shipping option where an ordinary cardboard box just won't cut it.
