Olive Oil by Philippe Starck

Designer Philippe Starck and enologist Michel Rolland have collaborated to create an ecologically produced La Amarilla de Ronda (LA) organic extra virgin olive oils from Andalucia, Spain.

The project grew as a result of mutual friend Pedro Gomez de Baeza’s hobby of making the oils on a small scale at his family estate and presenting them as holiday gifts. Decades of pressure from gift recipients to take the oils to a wider audience encouraged Mr. Baeza to call upon Rolland to help him create the perfect blends to best pair with a wide variety of foods. Longtime friend Starck volunteered to ensure that the package reflected the quality of the product inside.

Philippe Starck created the unique, slender tins to be reminiscent of books. The design incorporates the qualities of water-tightness and impermeability to light and have a protective inner layer of lacquer in order to preserve the qualities of these exquisite oils.

The olive oil is available in 250 ml, 500 ml and 3L tins.

    a prima vista m'è sembrata una latta di colore forse per le grandi lettere.

    This design makes me think of a can of paint thinnner. Not sure if that's a good thing! :)

    Have to agree with Jonathan... the packaging is too similar to a can of lighter fluid you buy at the local supermarket. Does not give the impression at all of being organic or classy, which you'd expect from this type of product.
