The 'CY-BO' packaging concept has been designed by Kenji Abe as a versatile solution for keeping products protected in a manner that is customizable instead of maintaining a one-size-fits-all aesthetic. The packaging consists of six-pronged pieces that interconnect with one another to form a chain and thus will wrap around items of any shape or size. This form enables a more complex 3D shape to be achieved and fit around the various curves of an item in a virtually infinite manner suit any range of products.
The 'CY-BO' packaging concept, which expands to "CYtological packing material beyond BOundaries," is one of six finalists for the LEXUS DESIGN AWARD 2021. The various components within the concept could be crafted using bio-materials and would highlight a reusable functionality for enhanced sustainability.
