OWLBOX: Exploring High-End Innovative Surfaces for Packaging & Product

Roctool’s induction-based moulding technology allows all types of resins to become perfectly liquid, with no frozen layer in contact with the mould surface. It can replicate 98% of the mould or insert surface. Thanks to this, it is possible to maximize the potential that laser-etched nanostructures can bring to surface design.

Among the textures I researched with a partner laser company, there are two that are innovative: One is a texture done with laser-etched Femto-level tubes, which traps the light like a black hole. With this, the true resin colour can be appreciated, with no parasitic reflects. For example, the black is incredibly deep and 100% black with no reflects at all. The other texture is a “living” texture that changes with the angle of the light, from glossy to the grained surface, transforming the same piece in two different ones. This project is one of our favorite, because we were able to mix our own designed graphics with science and technology to create an amazing sensorial experience.
