Stölzle are pleased to announce that Starpack Industry Awards, one of the UK's premier annual awards schemes recognising innovation in packaging design and technology has this year awarded Stölzle with silver awards for excellence in the fields of design and technology: Firstly in the Prestige spirits market a wonderful decanter for the Ultimate 38 YO Glenfiddich Whisky and in our Luxury skincare market for Lancome’s make-up bottle Teint Visionnaire.
Both containers are outstanding products. The whisky decanter, which had originally been produced by semi automatic process proved to be the perfect illustration for Stölzle to show their expertise and produce this beautiful decanter on an IS machine; the treatment included ‘fire polishing ‘. The containers were then put through a series of decoration processes, hand cut and painted in gold and finally polished again. This strictly limited item is finished with a diamond like crystal cap which truly complements the beautiful whisky within by its perfect visual appearance.
The second winner is a beautifully proportioned make up bottle designed and manufactured for Lancôme. The classic shape of the bottle is made up of three different parts: Liquid make-up in the heavy based glass bottle, a concealer, contained in the beautifully presented cap and finally a small mirror which is provided to ease the application for the customer.
‘Receiving the silver winner is a great honour,’ said Johannes Schick, CEO of Stölzle Glass Group. ‘Each of the bottles we submitted involved complex moulding and finishing requirements. Further to Starpacks Awards currently we have 3 products shortlisted in the UK Luxury Packaging Awards, as well, which is a recognition of the superlative skills of our Prestige glass factories and decoration facilities.’
