rPET bottle design inspired by Greenland
Manufacturing company Sidel has unveiled the design for its new recycled PET (rPET) water bottles.
Sidel’s art designers have created the NUUK bottle concept, drawing inspiration from the purity of ice and its formations. The brand takes its name from Greenland’s capital and the fjords that make it famous.
Produced from clear, 100% recycled PET, the container is designed for premium water brands.
The distinctive 500 mL bottle has a transparent pressure-sensitive label (PSL) decoration which is inspired by authentic Viking art, more specifically the Borre style.
Laurent Lepoitevin, Sidel’s Packaging Design Engineer, said the bottle was designed by the company’s patented Base Over Stroke System (BOSS).
“The mechanical forming which takes place during the blowing process optimises the material distribution in the final bottle base profile,” Lepoitevin said.
The consistent blowing process is designed to use a minimum amount of material. The wide cap, with its ice shape and blue colour, enhances the brand’s premium look and perception. The bottle is also compatible with tethered cap solutions to meet environmental requirements and forthcoming regulations.
