- This is aconceptual matchsticks package about the theme sustainability and materialeconomy.
- After doingsome tests with sticks, its size, burn time, and researches with the users, wereached a concept of mini matchsticks. Although the sticks are half the size ofthe common ones, it’s possible to use them in quick necessities withoutproblem. Moreover, if the user is afraid of burn the finger or need to reach afurther place, the package would bring together an adaptor to fit in the stickand increase its size.
- About thepackage itself, we decided to escape from the ordinary model of matchstick box.As the stick’s size is reduced, we could develop a very compact model, with sophisticatedfolds and details. The position of the sticks inside the package prevents theuser from overthrow all the sticks, as commonly happen in ordinary boxes.
- As our proposalis sustainability, let’s show some numbers: Comparing to a common box with 40units, our project (40 units too) promotes the economy of 20% in the packagematerial and 50% of the sticks’ wood.
