Parcel lockers made with the environment in mind
We particularly enjoy implementing projects which have a real impact on improving the fate of the planet and the environment. So when the opportunity to cooperate on the concept of Allegro parcel lockers appeared on the horizon, we jumped at the chance.
But wait… what can the device containing your parcel possibly have to do with caring for the Earth?
As it turns out, quite a lot. Allegro parcel lockers are powered by renewable energy and equipped with air quality sensors. What’s more – wherever possible, the machine is covered with living greenery. It’s not just a matter of aesthetics: plants produce oxygen and are an extremely valuable element of the urban space.
The main challenge that we faced was the design and visualisation of the parcel lockers. At each stage of our work, we had to keep in mind both the idea behind the project and the practical functionality of the lockers.
Thinking about space
Space played a key role in the project. We wanted the aesthetics of the parcel lockers to be universal and not to adversely affect the appearance of the local area. We knew that the best solution would be minimalistic and inspired by nature, in keeping with the latest trends in design. You can see the result below:
Space, however, is highly differentiated and comes with many barriers – the design of the parcel locker itself was a drop in the ocean of needs. From the very start of the project, we had to consider issues related to restrictions on potential locations (garages, underground, car parks), as well as the possibility for living greenery to grow.
In response to these challenges, we put together a guide for setting up the lockers and designed various versions of the bollards, vegetation and plant pots. We took into account that the machine could be, for example, against a wall, located in a typical neighbourhood, or in an area where access to soil is limited.
Getting down to detail
The idea of creating an environmentally friendly parcel locker is a noble one, but we couldn’t forget about the practical aspects of using the device. So the next stage of the work was to create an animation visualising the locker opening mechanism.
We also designed stickers that inform the locker users that the work on planting vegetation is still in progress. We suggested a simple message and a minimalistic form:
Creating the perfect design for the parcel locker was a real challenge. As well as being satisfied with a job well done, we’re delighted that we were able to play our part in the implementation of such a worthwhile idea.
Are you wondering what the implementation of this concept looks like in practice? Take a look at the photos below to find out:
Our cooperation with Allegro is very dynamic, but at the same time inspiring and interesting. It’s no accident that we’ve written “is” and not “was” – we have more projects to come, which we’ll tell you about soon!
