kenji abe designs reusable packaging that transforms to fit items

in the aim of reducing our dependence on single-use plastics that are rapidly polluting of our planet’s oceans, tokyo-based designer kenji abe has designed a unique, alternative form of packaging. called ‘CY-BO’, the cytological packaging material transforms into various shapes and sizes by simply combining pieces. this characteristic enables the design to be reused any number of times and rearranged to fit any type of application.

kenji abe’s ‘CY-BO’ is composed of multiple soft, sponge-like pieces that use their six-pointed shape to overlap with each other. the reusable packaging can be rearranged to hold any objects, from apples to oranges and even as pen cases, baskets or coasters. as well as its high flexibility, its material properties also ensure it is the perfect packaging alternative. its high cushioning protects the content from damages whilst its excellent water resistance keeps them dry.

 

with an unlimited amount of transformations, scroll down to see more examples of the shapes the ‘CY-BO’ packaging can be used to create.
