Can the packaging also be a product?
The gigantic waste mountain has been a thorn in the side of designer Jaap Elzas for years. A large part of this consists of packaging. Why do plastic, paper, or cardboard have to be around everything? Could packaging and product also be one, Jaap wondered? He went to work with that idea. The result is the Packlamp: Less mess in the house and less garbage. It's that simple.
