Advertising and product placement have long seeped into our everyday life; from the bus we ride to the music video we see. The Packaging Lights by designer Anke Weiss show the transformation of a mass-product into a unique advertising platform. Packaging, which traditionally aims to support and promote the sale of its content becomes a product itself. The packaging of normal everyday products such as juice, cookies or soap gain a new semantic and functionality.

Implications - In modern society, presentation and packaging is often as important as the product itself, and these recycled packaging lights showcase the significance of this relationship by incorporating the emotions and desires of the consumer into the layout of the packaging. Consumers do, in fact, judge a book by its cover.
