Singapore design student Chan Min Yun has packaged doses of medicine in little origami parcels that open like flowers when placed into water (+ movie).
The Blooms are made of thin water-resistant paper and each contain one dose of amoxicillin (an antibiotic for children), acetaminophen (menstrual pain relief) or paracetamol (pain and fever relief).
"The experience of watching the blooming medicine serves as a form of emotional relief in addition to physical relief from the medication by slowing down our pace, creating a moment to take a breather and reflect on what we are blessed with," says the designer.
