Looking beyond the external wrapping, the designer experimented with the paper shell that cradles the product inside the pack. Employing origami techniques, Crasset’s new solution makes it possible to transform the paper into a series of creature-shaped objects that can be assembled without scissors or glue and used as children’s toys.
From late September, the biscuit packaging will carry illustrative instructions on how to construct the quirky toys, while additional designs can be found on Lu’s website.
