I found this ABSOLUT vodka bottle in the store the other day and had to have it! ABSOLUT makes a lot of different and fun designs for their bottles and I really like this idea with ‘one of a million uniquely designed’ ones. Look at the video below for how they do it.
Some of the other 4 million bottles:
They “set up splash guns and color-generating machines, and developed an algorithm that places individual patterns on top of a specially-applied coat of paint, allowing for a nearly endless sequence of combinations from 35 colors and 51 patterns”.
Seems like a fun project to be part of

Gunnar Broman and Hans Brindfors designed the original ABSOLUT bottle in 1979. Since then, it has become an extremely well-known design. Many creators have made their mark on it, starting with Andy Warhol painting the first art ad for ABSOLUT, and continued by artists such as Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Louise Bourgeois.
Apparently, the entire collection is now gathered in Sweden where it will get its permanent home at the new Historical Museum of Wine and Spirits!
I also like this design, by Dave Kinsey
