A unique collaboration reimagines the iconic Aesop glass bottle.
May 3rd, 2011
The exhibition brought a set of young Australian designers across the globe to Milan. The 2 halves of the Aesop bottle, fitted together, represent the 2 sides of the globe and the feeling we get when we travel, of being there as opposed to here.
Using a 3D printing technique, each bottle half features a positive and negative version of text that lock in when the 2 halves are placed together.
The series of bottles will now be displayed in Aesop stores in London, Paris, Zurich and Basel. It will be interesting to see whether this beautiful, smooth form will be adopted by the brand as part of its regular packaging.
