“Looks as if it belongs in the master bath of men like Karl Lagerfeld and Tom Ford.” That’s what the New York-based style editor Mark Thompson wrote about the packaging for the natural skincare collection Ambuja from Legart Forschungsatelier. And he isn’t alone in his praises. The packaging for Ambuja was the big winner at the 2015 ProCarton ECMA Awards when it was chosen as Carton of the Year. The winning designers are two Austrian designer autodidacts, Herwig Bischof and Johannes Gautier.
