Bottle shape design begins with a large amount of sketches and ideas than are transposed on paper trying to find its creative path, continues with building its 3D appearance and prototype for a tactile experience and ends up unveiling its true character in crafted details before production.
Bottle design process involves more than just drawing a shape, it is about giving a unique character to every single product and it helps the client choose the appropriate packaging design before starting the actual production hence reducing costs.
Glass or aluminum, plastic or ceramics, bottle shape design started its journey long time ago and even today its highly influenced by society requirements and the emerging technologies of each era.
A bottle is a narrow-necked container as compared with a jar. Bottles come in various shapes (round, oval, square, etc) and sizes and are often made of glass, clay, plastic, aluminium or other impervious materials. They are used to transport and store liquids such as water, milk, soft drinks, beer, wine, cooking oil, medicine, shampoo, ink, and chemicals.
The bottle design has developed over millennia of use, with some of the earliest examples appearing in China, Phoenicia, Rome and Crete.
The glass bottle was an important development in the history of wine, because, when combined with a high-quality stopper such as a cork, it allowed long-term aging of wine.
