Samsung’s Small World celebrates World Environment Day in a playful way that inspires consumers to reimagine, recreate, and restore using product packaging. Since many shipping materials are only useful throughout the transportation process, Samsung wants to get people thinking about the many ways that cardboard boxes could be transformed into artful, play-inspiring creations.
There are buildings, animals and natural elements that have been created by Amsterdam-based paper artist AJ Smith, also known as Papersmith, transforming packaging for products like the QLED 4K TV, Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy Buds Pro into eco-conscious crafting materials. Some of the most dynamic Small World designs take the form of 3D pandas, whales and colorful cherry blossom trees, which promise to inspire imagination and even more creative designs from kids.
