Accordion-style Truffle Packaging
Packaging design + paper engineering
Built completely out of folding board, the squeeze box concept
developed for Auberge du Soleil Napa Valley is 100% recyclable. The hand-made truffles are well protected by the internal divider which moves with the box and allows for optimal product display.
My first thought was, it seems cool from an experiential perspective--you press the "accordion" down and the truffles basically present--but wasteful from a materials perspective due to all of the extra paper folds. But as Mattos points out the stuff is 100% recycleable, so we can get behind it with a clear conscience.
