No Picnic's Alma Swings

(8 years ago)
Thanks, Veuve Clicquot, for sponsoring our Milano Design Week coverage! That cute little icon up there is their new origami inspired ice bucket, Clicq’up.Definitely my favorite find of the day. I clearly have a thing for swings and for unique woody products that show off their original tree edges… well the Swedish No Picnic’s ALMA series of ‘social swings’ combine just that! They also remind me of the Loyal Loot Log Bowls! They feel like rough logs that were sliced to make a bench, then milled out and lacquered for a seat/seats in bold colors. Strung up with thick black rope, they are tied in clusters to the beams high above. Though a bit slippery, they certainly are gorgeous and fun to swing in! Apparently these are “meant to represent the soul of Sweden. As Leonardo Salzedo says, ‘As teamwork is needed to enjoy the swing, so in our everyday life a conjoint effort is important to reach a common goal’.” Gorgeous, fun, and in so many colors and sizes, they were a delight to swing in… take a peek at many pics of them on the next page ~ as well as some making of photos!TO PAGE 2 of "No Picnic’s Alma Swings"! -----> (Want more visual goodness?

Toni’s Goat’s Milk Yogurt

(8 years ago)
"Products of the brand Toni’s have always been standing for the theme of freedom – since the brand is the pioneer of the famous organic free-range eggs in Austria. Also Toni’s sheep and goats enjoy their life under the heavens. Typography, illustrations and colours of the new 100% recyclable packaging for ewe’s and goat’s milk yoghurt have high brand recognition and are also connected with the theme of freedom. Other issues such as health, nature and animal protection are conveyed in a beastly funny way."

Ukrainian Brandy

(8 years ago)
"The general idea was to present new product for Ukrainian market — brandy. As people mostly used to drink cognac, there would be no cliché behind brandy. We used Jules Verne’s stories for general theme and concept of adventure. This particular label was hand-drawn to show hand-made aesthetics. And slightly old-print style with artificially made bleeding and press gain. The shape of bottle was made considering the fact, that people buy drink during travel; and this bottle fits well any suitcase or back pack."
