Gezeiten is winner of this year's iF DESIGN AWARD together with the packaging manufacturer Corpack
The iF DESIGN AWARD annually honours outstanding design and is one of the most important design prizes in the world.
In the packaging discipline, the international jury of experts awarded the zero-waste packaging solution "Skincare for the New Age“ for its excellent design and execution.
The refillable cosmetic jar convinced the independent jury of experts with its innovative aesthetics, which reflect Gezeiten‘s aspirations and passion for a perfect product and a perfect brand experience. The number of entrants was large: almost 11,000 submissions from 56 countries.
The implementation and development of the packaging to a technically feasible and production-ready state was constructed and overseen by Corpack together with the client Gezeiten.
The aim was to ensure a high-quality implementation of the existing design concept. This meant developing a refill system for the jar without changing the external shape.
The packaging solves the sustainability challenge by reducing the environmental impact using recyclable materials, with a refill-system and a second-use concept.
To emphasise the exclusivity of the design, the finishing of the components played an important role.
