Award

Design Award

The bottle, the label and the packaging that collectively represent a style.

pamako design award

Pamako Monovarietal Tsounati Organic

It was very interesting to see how the design of a mere bottle, the special vessel of a precious oil, could be an opportunity to unleash the imagination, respecting the ’classicism’ of the intrinsic message of quality, well-being, craftsmanship, exclusivity and ‘good taste’ in all its meanings. Those are the keywords that I kept in mind when making my choice. They were applicable to many proposals, but it seemed to me that Pamako Monovarietal Tsounati Organic represented them best: in the elegance of the shape, in the invention of the hole that makes it easier to serve, in the spout that recalls an ancient amphora, in the slender and flattened design which evokes a contemporary edge, in the spirit of tradition.
