Cyber Eau de Parfum features electronic label with sustainable message

Look Labs, a German studio, has launched Cyber Eau de Parfum (EDP), the first ever unisex fragrance with an illuminated label, embedded printed electronics and a sustainable message, it claims.

The studio’s goal is the development of high-quality and innovative products in the beauty and lifestyle industry. They focus on combining traditional craftsmanship with new disruptive technologies and the founder’s passion for art, technology and sustainability. The company was founded in 2020 in Düsseldorf, by Jordan Katzarov, a multi-award technologist and designer with over 15 years in the beauty technology industry.

The pioneering fragrance, aptly named Cyber, “was inspired by sci-fi movies and a world in which technology, AI and advanced scientific innovations are integrated parts of our daily lives”, says Katzarov. More than just style, the perfume has substance and is environmentally focused.

When users press the power button on the label, the name CYBER lights up in red. The universal recycling and earth symbols that blink remind them that they should protect the planet and be conscious of the environment. The label, cap and outer packaging are sustainable and the perfume bottle itself is refillable.

The printed electronic label, which is self-powered and uses OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology, is good for 500 interactions according to Look Labs. The battery and sensor are fully printed and, because it uses OLED, it is completely disposable in the waste stream, it says.

It was a challenging journey to create a fragrance that combines gender-less, metallic, retro and futuristic elements all in one. We designed an astonishing product, both in terms of quality and components. We wanted our customers to completely rediscover the perfume experience with Cyber,” Katzarov explained.

The Italian designed bottle is made from ultra-light glass packaging is produced with an innovative glass forming technique. It is refillable and completely recyclable by waste separation, says the company. The shape of the bottles is specifically created to minimize glass weight and external volume, making the packaging light, easy to use, and carry in handbags or luggage.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
