Changing codes of luxury

We see a shift in consumer expectations and behaviours calling for a new type of experience from packaging. “Buy less, choose well, make it last” to quote Vivienne Westwood. For packaging this means designing for values and behaviours that are shifting towards experience, convenience and meaning, sustainability and delight. What we at the Absolut Company call Packaging with Purpose.

Reusable packaging – the new natural in cosmetics

In a disconnected world, we need new thinking to reach better decisions and build for the future. We will demonstrate how packaging companies can innovate and design the future for real change in the beauty industry and beyond, using packaging as an asset and part of a technical cycle of reuse rather than a cheap commodity that holds no value for companies or consumers.
