This beautiful Chinese tea packaging by Ken Lo can be reconfigured in a number of ways. The boxes are made up of rectangles, rhombuses and triangles that can be arranged to form larger shapes. The modular boxes are perfect for making gift boxes of all sizes. This is perfect for controlling the amount of tea gifted, depending on how much of a tea drinker the recipient is.

This project for Polytrade explore the uses of its 'Astrobright' papers. In addition to the variances in shape, Lo's design varies in color. When the boxes are assembled together, they look like beautiful pieces of patchwork. On top of this, the boxes have gold embossed patterns that make stunning accents to the boxes, whichever way they are arranged.
