Rubin Álvarez Yogurt / Packaging by Zoo Studio

Finding new applications for older materials is always nice when it’s new and unique, and these ceramic tops for Rubin Álvarez’s line of yogurts is exactly that. Designed by Zoo Studio these yogurt containers are protected a rather standard looking cardboard tube with a lid which is sealed by some kind of ceramic top that’s been air dried. I also love the way you use the string to breakthrough the ceramic to open the jar, I bet that would be so much fun to do, like when you open a paper FedEx envelope.

This is such a unique way of packaging an item, especially something so simple as a jar of yogurt. Nonetheless it’s a remarkable idea that I’ve never seen used before.

    I’ve never seen anything like it. At first I thought it was wax.

    Isn’t that kind of over packaging because the yogurt is already in a jar, a rather nice jar at that. It looks nice and it is a cool idea, but with the extra waste that it generates, it can hardly be called good design. The jar even has an extra wrapper over the lid.
    But it did catch my eye, so that’s good.
