AWARD

Lodo Concept&Design

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

Collezione di Famiglia

An extreme interpretation of oil, an increasingly precious elixir distilled from nature. Far from modernist interpretations or rustic temptations, the presentation of ‘Farchioni – Collezione di Famiglia’ makes a timeless choice of style its own, abstracted from the context, speaking the language of elegance in the clear and immediate shapes of the bottle and packaging. Black and gold, played between decorations and graphics, give an idea of beauty that suggests its intimate goodness.
