Now in its 14th edition, this year’s Bruni Glass Design Award (previously Progetto Millennio) is a biennial design contest for new glass containers for food products (bottles and jars using mechanical hollow glass technology) among the students of several European schools of design.
Of the 261 models presented over the course of the contest’s history (which thereby earn a place among the Bruni Glass product range), 60 have gone on to be produced at an industrial scale, generating 270 articles with various capacities, colors and closures.
Best in show, 1st Prize in category “spirits” and Best Graphic Design Skyskaper (Stefano Morazzoni, Politecnico di Milano): the bottle reproduces the image of a skyscraper, resulting in a striking image for the high impact demands of the spirits market.
1st Prize in category “wine”
Lisianthus (Carlotta Antonietti, Politecnico di Milano). The light and elegant shape of this design is inspired by the eponymous flower. Transparent beauty for sparkling wines.
1st Prize in category “olive oil and vinegar”
Jazz (Annika Rauch, University of Münster, D). The shape of the handle enables hanging the bottle as well as easier pouring. The doubling shape creates a stylized heart.
1st Prize in category “jars”
Sweety (Fabrizio Guarrasi, Politecnico di Milano). Sumptuous, surprising lines characterize the design of this jar for candies.
