ARKHÉ, a project by students of the Master's Degree in Packaging Design, wins the Verallia Design and Creation in Glass Competition


The project ARKHÉ, of the students of the Master's Degree in Packaging Design of Elisava Clara Vendrell and Nagore Celada, has won second prize in the Design and Creation Competition in Glass Verallia. The aim of the contest was to create a standard wine bottle model that could be used by many wineries.

ARKHÉ is inspired by the volcanic and arid terrain of El Hierro (Canary Islands), a place of great winemaking tradition where the vines cling to the earth by twisting on themselves. These organic forms composed of branches convey a sense of strength and movement. In ARKHÉ's design, the vine is born, grows and clings to life as it would in the most arid and hostile places. A bottle created for unusual wines but with characteristics that make them unique. A daring bottle for those who are not afraid of going out of the conventional, for those who want to attract attention and bet on an innovative design, but without losing sight of their roots. 

ARKHÉ was one of the 76 entries submitted in the eighth edition of this Verallia competition, in which 170 students from nine schools (five Spanish and four Portuguese) participated.
