Gallery: Éva Valicsek’s Cardboard Container Reinvents the Traditional E...

 
Although it would be very difficult to transport eggs without the full protective casing, the Applied Arts student has still given the traditional egg box a fantastic new look.

Egg cartons are such commonplace, familiar objects that you wouldn’t expect to see a redesign that trumps their tried-and-true form. However designer Éva Valicsek has reinvented this iconic item to make an angular version of the original that is made from simple sheets of diagonally folded cardboard.

The design consists of useful cardboard flaps attached with rubber bands that hold the eggs firmly in place, keeping them protected yet accessible. This format also allows the packaging to fold in on itself, which may encourage the boxes to be recycled or reused – although it may be difficult to transport eggs without the full protective casing. We’ve covered reinvented chicken coops in the past, but we haven’t seen many revamped spaces for the eggs themselves.

    Are rubber bands bio-friendly?
