Campfire 2 Go’ Receives Second Design Award

Campfire 2 Go’, a readymade campfire designed by SCA Packaging Finland and Valmisnuotio Oy and has been granted this year's international WorldStar design award.

It is also one of the top five nominees for WorldStar President’s Award. Earlier this autumn the innovation was awarded in Scanstar 2009 design competition.

‘Campfire 2 Go’ is a readymade campfire packed in a corrugated board box. The firewood, air-dried Finnish birch, will take fire easily in any weather by means of the accompanying fire bite.

The burning time of the campfire is about an hour, after which only ashes remain. ‘Campfire 2 Go’ weighs about 5 kilos, so it is not too heavy to carry on a picnic.

The innovation of a campfire box started from an idea of using Finnish firewood together with corrugated board as packaging material and creating a brand of this combination.

SCA Packaging Finland has been awarded in Scanstar and WorldStar competitions over three subsequent years. This time ‘Campfire 2 Go’ was the only Finnish product that received the WorldStar recognition. Last year SCA Packaging was awarded together with Fiskars Brands Finland Oy.
