ECO-CITY- image


The workshop invited participants to come up with easly compacted, reusable paper and cardboard packaging solutions in keeping with the principles of ecodesign: it yelded interesting packaging prototypes designed to serve another function, either pratical or playful, once the telephones and modems are taken out.

The prototypes the students presented with feature a particulary interesting take on the theme of reuse, giving a second life to telephone and modem packaging. The project EcoCity can be taken apart to make a toy city.
