LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

PACKAGING LIGHTS BY ANKE WEISS

Dutch Design Week: designer Anke Weiss has created a series of lights from used food and drink packaging. Weiss traces the patterns and text on the packaging with hundreds of pin-pricks, which allow the light to shine through. The lights were exhibited at Eat Drink Design in Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week last month.

The packaging lights show the transformation of a mass-product into a unique item. Through individual adaptation, the packaging of products like juice, cookies or soap gain a new purpose. The packaging (the purpose of which is to support the sale of its contents) becomes a product itself. It survives the point where it usually turns into garbage.
