The packaging waste mountain has always been an eyesore to designer Jaap Elzas.
Why does everything need to be packed in plastic, paper or cardboard?
Jaap wondered: Could the packaging be the product?
Inspired by this idea, he set to work. The result is the Packlamp.
You just turn the packaging inside out to transform it into a lamp!
That means less clutter at home, and less waste. It’s that simple.
