Another pair of chained polyhedral portion packs of the sort we’ve been obsessed with for a while. Each was nominated in the Packaging Impact Design Awards for different years.
1. Hanna Jansson’s Estivale Champagne packaging was among this year’s PIDA’s nominees from Sweden. Her carton, containing four Champagne bottles, starts our as a rectangular box, with four “hingedly connected” right triangle prism shaped compartments. Besides affording more space for product information when displayed as an unfolded chain of packages, her design is also reversible, with a dual arrangement, in which the bottles are visible, rather than hidden.
“Once opened it’s going to turn inside out and can then be placed directly on the dinner table. The inside is decorated with recipes that contains champagne to eat on a summer day.”

2. Choc’n’Diz was a collaborative project by Cloé Tizot, Julien Gorgery and Julie Znamiec. Among the 2011 PIDA nominees from France, their “string of individually packed chocolates” won the Best Level of Innovation Award.
“It is designed with removable single portions which gives it flexibility and defining it as a nomadic pack…”
Each portion is a separate tetrahedron, but these tetrahedrons are arranged differently from the classic “TetraPak sausage” arrangement.
