Addressing the issue of climate change, designer Naama Nicotra uses natural edible materials with agar, the essential ingredient produced from algae, to create a series of dissolvable food packaging. The food wrap series titled ‘NakedPak’ explores the idea of going back to natural and sustainable solutions that were used for centuries, but have been replaced by plastic and paper packaging.
Naama Nicotra’s NakedPak formula uses algae as the main ingredient to form bioplastic packaging. The resulting material is transparent, tasteless, and can be manufactured as a two-dimensional sheet or as a three-dimensional structure. Spices and sauces can be incorporated into the NakedPak natural material, thus producing flavored packaging that dissolves in boiling water.
