Our proud Luxury Packaging Awards 2017 Finalists:
O.F.C. display box – Gift Pack
A complex cylindrical MDF woodgrain paper-wrapped structure was created to house the first vintages of Buffalo Trace Distillery’s O.F.C. Bourbon Whiskey, a range of rare and collectable vintage-dated bourbons, solely available to nonprofits for fundraising purposes.
The O.F.C. name is borne on a copper plaque (held firmly in place by recessed magnets) and depicts the year in which the bourbon was distilled. Bottle fitment was produced using EVA material, wrapped in white PU leather. The top fitment features white flocked PS vac-form. Copper bands feature on the top and bottom of the revolving door, as well as a pull ribbon tag. A ribbon is included in the bottle recess.
The pack shows off a unique swivel closure and internal spinning mechanism to allow for striking on-shelf display. The rotation system runs on bearings for smooth as possible movement, and stops on a magnetic catch. Upon opening the revolving door on the oval box, the bottle displays on a small riser.
BV Rarity display case – Special Edition
A luxury single bottle display case was created for the iconic 1.5L of George De Latour Cabernet from the Beaulieu Vineyard private reserve, to be distributed to super-collectors in the Asian market.
The BV Rarity luxury wine box is made from MDF and paper-wrapped in black wood-grain. A copper metal lock with key, and a copper metal L-shaped handle open the box. Bottle and lid fitments are EVA trays wrapped in black felt. A surface card was produced using rigid board wrapped with red PU leather, finely stitched, and completed with a gold foil logo.
The box features copper metal hinges that allow a 90 degree opening to allow for a view of the product within and displays an elegantly executed laser engraved logo on the top of the box. Outer pack branding was designed as a gold electroformed decal.
Royal Canadian Mint – Technical Achievement
An intricate mixed medium coin display case was created to hold 4 limited edition, pure gold coins designed to ship as a gift or collector’s set. Four aspheric magnifying lenses inset into the black veneer MDF case lid provide 2X magnification at exactly 12mm focal length. The lenses are specially moulded into an acrylic panel with frosting that displays the iconic RCM logo.
The magnifying lenses allow the fine details of the coins within to be reviewed without opening the pack and risking harsh elements tarnishing the coins faster. The case is finished with gold electroplated metal hinges and a button latch) and features a felt lining on the base.
The 4 coins are placed in their coin capsules and then into a filled thermoformed flocked tray. A ribbon pull-tab on the coin tray allows the consumer to lift it to find a “secret” compartment underneath that houses the certifications for the coins.
