Lars Wallentin was the kind of person you don’t meet everyday!
He was a Grand Old Designer who’s track record in international packaging design field working for Nestlé is just amazing and unparalleled. KitKat, Maggi and many other global brands are a reminder of his design thinking and his heritage.
We remember many great and interesting conversations – not only about design, but almost about anything. Lars was unbelievably widely civilised and cultured. His sense of humour and ability to make circumspect decisions was something we all had the pleasure of sharing. He always filled the room with laughter. Out-of-the-box design thinking was his trademark long before than this saying was created. One of his habits tells a lot about his personality and style of living: Many of us received his hand-written letters in an envelope with his beautiful calligraphic brush lettering.
Thank you, Lars
