The future of premium packaging at FachPack 2018
24. September 2018
Nuremberg, Germany – At this year’s edition of FachPack, the leading European trade fair for packaging, processing and technology, NürnbergMesse will host a special show of approximately 40 premium packaging innovations from around the world. This special show is being presented in cooperation with bayern design, the design competence center. As a new feature, FachPack 2018 will include an additional hall in which more than 90 exhibitors will present products and solutions for the printing and finishing of packaging and premium packaging in an attractive setting. From September 25 to 27, 2018, hall 8 will focus on a special show of packaging design made from innovative materials as well as novel printing and finishing techniques for everyday products and luxury goods. The special show will be supported by brief lectures at Forum PackBox on September 25 in hall 7 about current trends and developments for tomorrow’s packaging design.
Premium Packaging special show
Hall 8 will revolve around the Premium Packaging special show. Close to 40 samples from as far away as Australia and Canada will illustrate how packaging design can contribute to the success of a brand’s image. Divided into three categories – EMPOWER, SUSTAIN and CONNECT – the show will highlight the latest trends in brand communications and will detail future areas of application for new materials and technologies.
Forty exhibits, six highlights
In the packaging finishing segment, Eberl Print has processed high-quality cardboard with dispersion coating, cellophane and partially glossy UV relief coating for ABUS‘ Granit Vorhängeschloss.
For the Oberhofer winery, Clorman Design has created wine bottle packaging in the shape of a gnarly vine. Any or all of the four embossed and printed layers of the wood-like structure can be fanned out. The bottle sits on an oak base which features an engraved logo.
Clean The Ocean by KOREFE is an example of sustainable packaging. The biodegradable universal cleaner comes in bottles made of porcelain instead of plastic. The porcelain bottles are replicas of plastic bottles and when empty can be repurposed into vases. The colors match those of the ocean’s ecosystem.
Tast(e) Food, innovative packaging for foodstuffs, will be introduced by designer Anne Bansen. The sealing foil changes its structure when biochemical changes occur in the protected atmosphere of the packed food. This shows the consumer when the product has expired.
Nirlat has developed ipaint to revolutionize the work required of craftspeople painting interiors: A bag of wall paint is inserted into a backpack and the paint is pumped from the bag into a hose directly connected to a roller. The packaging is a closed system to prevent debris from entering the paint. In addition, users no longer have to bend to access the paint tray.
Sulapac will introduce an innovative material made of FSC-certified wood and natural binding agents. The material exhibits the benefits of plastic but is entirely biodegradable. One decisive advantage of Sulapac’s innovation: Manufacturers of plastics can use their existing machines to produce this material.
In addition, bayern design will contribute to Forum PackBox by presenting brief lectures titled A look into the future – current trends and developments for tomorrow’s packaging design:
Daniel Belliero (Peter Schmidt, Belliero & Zandée GmbH): Development of a new brand
Anja Röhrle (DS Smith Packaging Deutschland Stiftung & Co. KG): Digital print: a new era for brand activation and protection
Nina Saller (XbeyondS): Added value: an overview of trends in materials and packaging design
The lectures will be offered on September 25, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in hall 7.
