The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.


Within the framework of the Demonstrator project, Innventia’s researchers, together with designer Anna Glansén, interpreted different expressions new materials can adopt.For example, a cellulose composite that shows properties from soft, fluffy and opaque to semi-strong, rigid and translucent. The project developed five demonstrators that show our different skills in materials research and packaging development.

The demonstrators have been evaluated for sustainability, including  climatic testing, logistics, and consumer experience. They are examples of how packaging be able to meet functional, environmental, energy, logistics and consumer demands.

The dome - Cellulose in three parts

Innventias demonstrator kupolen

The dome - Formable pulp, where water and heat have been used
The window - The smallest constituent part of wood fibre, water-cast into a film
The lid - Wood

The pentagon - The barrier

Innventias demonstrator pentagonenMoisture barrier concept for biobased and printable barriers. The demonstrator shows packaging before and after activation of the barrier.

The cone - Self-opening packaging

Innventias demonstrator konenInteractive and mechano-active material. The demonstrator shows how heat, moisture or electricity can create a controlled movement.

The cube/the star: Transformable packaging

Innventias demonstrator kuben stjärnanA playful cube that can be converted into a star. Demonstrates grip stiffness measurement and openability.





The project was financed by RISE and led by Innventia's Marie-Claude Béland.
