More on the 2022 Award Winners:

Ninu Perfume [Gold Award – Professional Concepts: Body, Skin, Health & Beauty]
A harmonious fusion of design, innovation, and sustainability, Ninu is the world's first AI-enhanced, sustainable smart perfume bottle, allowing the user to create 100 bespoke fragrances based on their mood, activity, and olfactory preferences. The sustainable design allows users to replace and recycle the three interior scent cartridges while reusing the premium outer container. From the industrial design and primary & secondary packaging to the branding, visual identity, and marketing materials, Ninu is a completely custom project from the innovators at Berlin Packaging | Premi Industries.

Branch Basics [Bronze Award – Sustainable Design: Home, Leisure & Other Markets]
When Branch Basics needed a bottle for their home cleaning line that fit their brand mission and was suitable for their high-quality products, they partnered with the team at Studio One Eleven. The Studio team customized a sleek, simple stock bottle to create a more premium aesthetic, adding touches like ceramic printing to communicate different usage occasions and a color-coded silicone neck ring for easy differentiation between products. The addition of an embossed silicone sleeve at the base is a unique, high-quality feature that helps ensure the Branch Basics package is anything but basic.
