TAKASHI OCHIAI


Ochiai is a highly regarded Japanese patisserie in Barcelona founded by Takashi Ochiai in 1983.

The most famous Ochiai pastry is the Daifukus and its descendants, Mochaiai and Minimochi are colourful and attractive pastries.

We designed the packaging to maximise the visual impact of these delightful pastries and to create a gift like feel to the box.

We complemented the gift boxes with custom designed bags made especially for Mochiai and Minimochi.

These were made from a plain sheet of fine cardboard which can easily be folded into a bag that can carry up to five Mochiai and Minimochi using traditional origami technique.

The principles of material and space saving run throughout the entire design project.
