The two products, which are detailed below, were also prizewinners at the Japan Packaging Contest 2018. Winning the WorldStar Awards demonstrates that their usefulness has been recognized globally.
Asahi Super Dry Special Gift Set, an award-winning item
This packaging with multi-layered boxes contains a set of beer glasses, coasters and 12 cans of beer and has a feeling of quality suitable for a gift.
The double lid, comprised of a top lid and inner lids which open from the center outwards, stably holds three layered boxes and protects them as if they were wrapped. Also, opening the inner lids outwards to the left and right is an easy action, and enhances a receiver’s sense of expectation. Each box of the layers fits into both parts of the inner lid, enabling the product to be displayed attractively for sale.
Emergency Food Set with Table Function, an award-winning item
This emergency food set is comprised of a corrugated box containing canned food and heating equipment as household emergency supplies, with the package having a secondary function as a table.
It can be expected to provide improved hygiene and convenience in harsh environments such as disaster areas. The layout of the contents has been devised to ensure plentiful table area while making sure that the corrugated box does not become unnecessarily big.
