The Tbox – Displaying box for discount stores
The Tbox is a cardboard box for bulk products, which can be turn into an exhibition corner inside the retail store. The Tbox is made from a single wall, double face corrugated cardboard sheet, characterized by an “A” ﬂuted sheet (4,2 mm) glued to two flat linerboards.
The Tbox’s 1:1 scale mock-up is produced in collaboration with the Italian company Ghelfi Ondulati S.p.A. Corporate website: www.ghelfiondulati.com
The Tbox design is based on the specific requirements of discount supermarkets: low prices and systematic control of costs to retailer stores. In these kinds of stores costs are often cut back by saving during carriage, storage and handling of goods, and mainly exposing products directly into their packaging.
The function of The Tbox is to protect the product during transport, while an intuitive packaging and effective infographic printed on the front enable to open and place the boxes without difficulty, creating an exhibition corner inside the retail store. Furthermore, the custom graphic printed on The Tbox maintains direct communication between the contained product and the consumer.
Several stacked boxes become an exhibition island:
