Everyday Karmakamet has created a new product line called the Blooming Tea. After being soaked in hot water, the ball blooms beautifully, thus revealing the tea’s floral ingredient. To best capture the spirit of this new product line, we created a packaging that is aesthetically pleasing while having a similarity to the original flower. The design process began with a collaboration with a paper sculptor. First, she studied the detail and anatomy of real flowers. The artist then needed to find the ideal shape and size, and came up with complex paper folding techniques. A mechanism also had to be designed to first squeeze out the tea and be able to return the flower to its original shape so that consumers have a memento of that special moment with a Blooming Tea.
