The conceptual 'Pearl' paper pod packing solution aims to make portion packaging more sustainable in markets such as the beauty industry to curb unnecessary waste. The packaging draws design inspiration from the sea and highlights an almost ethereal aesthetic that gives the otherwise ordinary item a touch of whimsy for shoppers to enjoy. The paper pod could eliminate the need for plastic alternatives and could be used in a multitude of ways to offer a more eco-conscious solution.
The conceptual 'Pearl' paper pod packing solution is the design work of BillerudKorsnas and Syntegon who explained, "Inspired by life and shapes of the sea, we then conceptualized the project named Pearl. What makes it special are the 3D-properties enabled by the FibreForm paper and manufacturing technology. Resulting in unique tactile experiences and embossed shapes of the paper shell, driving new business opportunities."
