Gamsei

When Gamsei opened in 2013, hyper-localism was introduced to a field of practice which had till then been mainly confined to the food scene.

Just like the cocktails, Buero Wagner procured all materials locally, and worked in close collaboration with local manufacturers to produce custom-made solutions.

The packaging actually looks like it was plucked from the woods and moulded to form a CD. On the outside, various lines are visible, almost appearing as small trees growing up the side of the case. The wooden exterior also helps to give it an extremely naturalistic look. Paths of Light is an extreme update from the cases many saw for CDs in the 1990s, which usually consisted of basic plastic with a paper package to explain the contents inside.(text by J. D. Munro)
