hexagonal-egg-carton

When asked to design cheap and functional packaging to store eggs safely, Portuguese design student Gil Rodrigues took it one step further. He made something as beautiful as it is practical.

His creation is a hexagonal package for storing eggs that unrolls into a straight line of six individual containers. The eggs are secured in these mini triangular boxes, each one opening up like a present to reveal the egg inside. An added plus to the clever design is that the package doesn't use glue to hold it together. Instead, grooves in the cardboard fit together to create the unique hexagonal shape.

The design is simple and elegant, a refreshing method for grabbing some breakfast.
