Sometimes a box isn't just a box
Aldis Blicsons and his partner Toms Grinbergs created a wooden balance bike for small children called Choppy Bike. Their design brand, STUM, is a brand all about fun, creativity, and sustainability.
When they approached Stora Enso Packaging Solutions, they had an idea and showed up with a prototype box.
Turning ideas into reality
“It was great fun to work with Toms and Aldis on the Choppy Bike packaging. They had all of these new ideas and it was my job to make sure they could work in practice.”
Sustainable material and design
Reuseable and 100% recyclable
“The bike and package were created together and are strongly related. For example, the bike has no screws and the package has no glue. Similarly, both the bike and package use a minimum of materials,” says Libeks. “It was a good challenge to work with them.”
“I think the future of packaging is adding value,” says Grinbergs. “It is always a pleasure to work with Stora Enso to accomplish this.”
The package is 100% recyclable, but it could have a long life entertaining children before it is ready to be recycled and turned into something new.
