Packaging increasingly holds a leading role in today's consumer society. The combination of the product and its packaging into one object emphasizes the value of sustainability and the value of a nomadic lifestyle by turning the eyeglasses into their own carrier. The project focuses on 'Zero Waste' principle by using 3D printing technology and by optimized the source files for minimal use of material and shortest print time. The project is inspired by Japanese calligraphy, which 'packs' one whole message by minimal use of graphic lines.
