Where many industries have suffered greatly due to the pandemic, interior design and construction businesses are finding the opposite is true. From home design to the hospitality industry, many people and businesses are using this time to update their interiors with a focus on stylish, durable, and easy to clean surfaces.
Enter Panasphere, a manufacturing company specializing in thermally-fused laminate panels and decorative surfacing materials for high-end hospitality, healthcare, retail, commercial, and residential applications. Combining on-trend aesthetics with efficient functionality, Panasphere offers solutions to architects, designers, fabricators, and homeowners to reinvent their spaces.
When the global pandemic hit, Panasphere needed to get creative with how they got their laminate samples out to design professionals, since many showrooms closed or reduced their hours. With many design professionals pivoting to virtual consultations and working from home, Panasphere needed to reimagine how to distribute sample materials.
Their solution? A custom sample kit of materials that easily ships to design professionals and homeowners so that decision makers can touch and feel each surface option before committing to a surface material. Panasphere reached out to Taylor Box for help and guidance in putting together a luxe custom sample kit that would highlight the elegant surface selections.
The sample kit itself is an intentionally simple two-piece box and lid, made from Newman 80 black chipboard wrapped in Ecological Fibers Rainbow paper. Simple leaf foil highlights the company name and logo on the exterior. A snug Crosslink foam insert nestles each sample uniformly for both storage and display purposes. Universal provided both foil and foam products. The goal of the box design is to serve as a blank canvas on which each luxe laminate sample shines through.
Panasphere had a specific budget and timeline for this project and Taylor Box walked them through every step of the packaging design process, revising the plans along the way to meet Panasphere’s needs.
Now, these custom sample kits travel all over the world to architects and design professionals who can efficiently choose design material from the comfort and safety of their own home or office. Pandemic or not, these sample kits are sure to be a mainstay moving forward and Taylor Box was delighted to be a part of the process.
