Landor Associates has designed a special edition bottle form, titled Origine, for mineral water brand Evian. The product will be distributed in more than 100 countries from this week and was created by Landor’s Paris office, which won a paid creative pitch in January 2003. The bottle, made from thick glass, is described as ‘a monolithic ice-like sculpture’ with irregular angles, ‘reminiscent of alpine mountain tops’. It has a red-tinted cap that illuminates the glass. Evian developed a new production line especially to manufacture the bottle.
