TWIN STAR - the new full aluminium cap by FLOSTY

Sustainable development is the major collective challenge on the agenda of the planet. For hight-end brands in our sector, it is not an altruistic opportunity anymore, but a real business imperative.

More and more, there is a clear desire to go further in the development of products incorporating more sustainable materials and properties. Aluminium is not only lightweight, strong and beautiful, it’s also highly recyclable.

The life cycle of an aluminium product is not the usual “cradle-to-grave” chain, but rather a renewable “cradle-to-cradle” sequence. This quality of infinite recyclability has led to a situation where today almost 3 quarters of the aluminium ever produced is still in productive use, some of it having been through countless loops of product lifecycle!

With this in mind and with aluminium as our core-trade, FLOSTY, always looking for innovative and efficient answers, presents the first full-aluminium cap, where both external and internal pieces are made of this metal: the TWIN STAR.

It is a full metal copy of our existing best seller, the STAR cap. In this new version, no plastic insert and no glue, both components are fitted together by friction, creating a 100% aluminium cap which has the advantage of a triangulated one (fully recyclable with a low carbon footprint) but also the edge of a cap with insert: quality, finish, sensation and touch.

No need to disassemble the cap in the moment of recycling it to reinject the aluminium into a full lifecycle span.

Real luxury is by definition durable.

FLOSTY’S Standardized Magnetic Cap

A good illustration of FLOSTY’s versatile products, here is one of our latest creation: an innovative concept of aluminium cap that combines the exclusivity and quality of a magnetized stopper with the optimization and efficiency of standard solutions.

The product consists of two pieces: a cap and an aluminium ring coupled with magnets. The cap, adaptable to all FEA 15 and neck heights, is delivered assembled with its ring. The mechanism has been developed in such a way that the ring is locked to the neck of the bottle by friction and the cap is removed and fitted simply by the strength of the magnets: play the animation illustrating it!

This innovative concept is registered and marketed in a first phase with an aluminium cap model and two different necklace options, with multiple customization possibilities.

Animation: working process

We asked WINT’s team to share their vision on working on our homepage animation, the window into our work!
Here’s what they said:

“When working on 3D animations it is very tempting to lose yourself and depicture anything you want, because there are no constraints in the virtual world. We deliberately decided to create a simple storyline that sticks to the process of how the real product actually comes to life – thus follow the actual technical steps, yet in an abstract and aestheticized manner. The storyline is composed of four key scenes that follow the cylinder as the main protagonist of the story:

– The story starts with a larger amount of flat aluminium discs and how they are deep drawn into cylinders and cubical shapes to embody the industrial scale and efficiency of production.

– The different raw pieces then float through surface treatments such as anodization, represented by coloured bubbles. The evolving geometries, now start to take final shape, colour and texture, yet float aside to give space for a single cylinder – we called this the “hero shot”

– Next we focus on a single cylindrical geometry that flips through various shapes and combinations of customization options, a state that represents not only creativity but the highest care to detail and quality on a piece that is as carefully crafted as a handmade piece.

– Finally, we enter the last scene and show the amazing variety done in high quality materials and finishes that FLOSTY is capable of offering – turning a standard into a highly creative & customizable product of unique quality: FLOSTY – Make It Yours.

Flosty & Wint Design Lab

FLOSTY, through TESEM’s Innovation Lab, constantly enrols in relevant technology development collaborations with various partners and research institutes. The creation and presentation of state-of-the-art technologies that can bring an added value to our clients is one of our objectives. This is done by proposing new materials, processes and decoration techniques.

Consistent with this approach, FLOSTY has joined forces with a team of German product designers and signed an agreement with WINT Design Lab, based in Berlin.

With this collaboration we aim at the ideation of new designs and innovative models and techniques to position FLOSTY as the creative and versatile packaging solution.

Wint Design Lab was also responsible for creating our “carte de visite” online, a virtual animation representing the brand. We feel that our new vision and focus on development and innovation will benefit from Wint’s creativity, where they conceptualize and materialize future products based on new and emerging Technologies, Materials and Processes.

Welcome to Flosty

To speak of cosmetics and fragrances is to speak of a whole universe, or rather, of as many universes as designers are able to create. Now, what is rarely said is that to build this universe you need elements that allow you a creative elasticity that goes beyond the frontier of innovation.

There are different players that together with the development departments elaborate the perfect combinations for a harmonized final product. To achieve this creative delimitation and the no-barrier, it’s not easy. Long processes, creation of molds, development and production costs, product performance, beta modeling … meaning sometimes a barrier, either time-wise, costs-wise or both.

For this very reason and with the objective of making this process more agile, creative and dynamic, Flosty was born. Flosty is the brand that allows you to use products created by our development and innovation team which, following the latest trends, offers the customer the most innovative components with multiple customization options but without the difficulties or costs of a tailored-made product.

Our brand, faithful to its values, allows each product or piece to be unique, as illustrated through our brand pictogram (“o”, flow effect), an elasticity, without ties, without limits and without complications.

Flosty, naming composed of the word style and the word flow, makes us a liquid brand model able and willing to adapt to thousands of ideas, keen on “dressing” dreams, desires and above all, to be reactive.

Welcome to a new way of doing.

Flosty presents its first full-plastic cap

FLOSTY presents its first full-plastic cap: insert, ballast and top part in Polypropylene (PP).

Meeting the challenge of sustainability in packaging is not only unavoidable for any actor of the sector, it is also by conviction at the chore of our strategy at FLOSTY. As such, a very conclusive option is MONOMATERIAL items, recyclable without needing to be disassembled.

Based on one of our best-sellers aluminium & PE cap, the GLAM model, this new PP cap enables us to offer even more versatility to the range. Both WHITE and BLACK are available as standards, either in shiny or matte finish. Especially true for white and pale shades, this new item presents the advantage of being more economical than the aluminium lacquered version, while offering a sleek and elegant look and dutifully complying with required technical specifications (contact us to receive our “Cahier des Charges”)

Thanks to a wide array of models, decoration techniques and materials, our always-growing options truly allow labels to MAKE the product theirs, without the need to invest in moulds.

According to the quantities needed, we can develop any colour required, through proposals from our own ranges to duplicating your reference.
