Italy wins the international finale of the Verallia Design Awards
The winners of the international finale of Verallia design contest are Aurora Ramos, Deniz Dönmez and Rohit Sahas Rabudhe, three students from the Italian edition of the contest, for their project De Fiasco, a bottle for the wine market.
Drawing its inspiration from a typically Italian flask-shaped bottle, De Fiasco is a new interpretation of an old bottle which at the time combined various materials (straw, laces and glass), to provide a 100% glass modern version. The original bottle finishing using straw and laces has been replaced with external engraving.
Since 2009, various Verallia group subsidiaries have held an annual design competition. In 2017, Verallia Design Awards were held in seven countries: Germany, Brazil, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Ukraine. Almost 1,000 art or design school students and recent graduates designed an innovative glass container based on a given theme. The participants were provided with support from the Verallia teams, in particular to provide them with details about glass and its manufacturing requirements.
