Safe Food was the key focus for design students of Berlin FHTW University, who were challenged by Wipak to develop creative packages for the future.
The students will showcase their ideas to an international audience at Interpack, with sample packages on show as part of a special exhibition at the Wipak stand. For more information about Wipak at Interpack, click here.
“When we set the students the task of designing packaging for ‘safe food’, we not only wanted them to consider long shelf life and protection during transportation, but to think about ways that packaging can be more efficient, how it can save space in the refrigerator,” explained Adolf Ahrens, Head of Wipak’s Innovation Center.
Supporting Young Scientist
Wipak is proud to work alongside universities and students, and help promote the work of young scientists. The 2016/2017 project is the fourth instance that the Company has supported work of this kind, collaborating with the FHTW and the German Packaging Institute to help the product and packaging designers of the future flourish. Approximately 20 students have been involved in the project, covering many topics in lectures, through computer study, and during workshops organised by Wipak Walsrode.
“Collaboration with Students is an Enrichment”
“Every time we collaborate with the students, it is an enriching exercise for us,” continued Ahrens. “They implement their ideas completely detached from any technical or economic constraints, and the results are truly impressive. The project has produced some inspiring and impressive concepts, which have the potential to one day make it onto the supermarket shelves. Until then, the student designers will showcase their ideas to an international audience at Interpack, with sample packages on show as part of a special exhibition at the Wipak stand.”
