This exhibition explores some of the most influential packaging designs, inventions and innovation in branding that have changed the way we consume goods.

From new methods of color printing to the discovery of a formula for making thin transparent sheets from cellulose, this exhibition looks at discoveries and designs that have changed the history of packaging. The display explores some of the most influential creations that have shaped our daily lives and enabled higher quality, more durable products, like the invention of tin cans or aerosols.
