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
mmm and I really want to try this one with hibiscus and pomegranate flavour…
look, another pomegranate in the background 🙂
I have this V&A calendar at home that is both filled with beautiful pictures and some great information. Every month I learn something new about British textile design =)

I’ve been out Christmas shopping with my friend Nadia. At the Scandinavian design store Republic of Fritz Hansen, we got into the Christmas spirit as they had a beautiful tree and lots of decorations..
we also found these beautiful retro Christmas cards!
they’re from a brand called ‘pleased to meet’ www.pleasedtomeet.de
In the same store, we also saw these glögg (mulled wine) glasses from iittala. Perfect for the Christmas party!
(just checked iittala’s website and they have sooo many nice things, some very red and christmassy..)
We also went to the book shop and found some Fitzgerald books with absolutely amazing covers
Although I already have the great gatsby I just had to get the black and green one above. Too beautiful not to have. And I really want the other ones too… (christmas gift hint hint)
